A house in Sydney’s west has been destroyed by a major fire overnight that took more than 30 firefighters to extinguish.
Emergency services rushed to the Emu Plains home on Nepean Street just before midnight on Thursday to find the property entirely engulfed in flames.
It led to concerns from Fire and Rescue NSW that the blaze could spread to nearby properties.
It took about an hour for the fire to be extinguished.
No one was in the home at the time and the blaze was contained to the property.
Fire and Rescue NSW investigators and NSW Police forensics were back at the property on Friday morning to further examine the scene and investigate the cause of the blaze.
Police were pictured looking around the house on Friday morning.
Images show the roof of the home had been completely destroyed, while windows were blown out as a result of the blaze.
Furniture was blackened and walls were stripped of paint.
