A family of five were forced to flee their Albion Park Rail home overnight after a fire broke out in the garage and quickly spread to the house.
A 45-year-old man, 36-year-old woman and three children ran to a neighbour’s house about 11.30pm after discovering their garage was well-alight.
Fire crews arrived at the Coachwood Dr home moments later to find the fire had spread.They worked for more than two hours to extinguish the blaze.
Ambulance paramedics were also called and the family were treated at the scene but did not require hospital treatment.
The blaze was extinguished at 2.07am.
Police do not believe the fire was suspicious and that an electric fault may be to blame.
