UPDATE 11AM: Fire and Rescue NSW Inspector Mark Delves says the fire's been contained.

"At this stage, we're looking to extinguish it shortly," Inspector Delves told the newsroom.

"We've conducted primary and secondary searches of the premises and haven't located anyone, so we belive the house was vacant at the time of the fire."

Six Fire and Rescue NSW crews are attending along with a number of RFS crews, Police and Ambulance.
