Wollongong police are investigating a fire that completely destroyed a villa at Bulli on Saturday night.
Emergency services were called to the Hutton Avenue address about 7pm after reports of a house fire.
When they arrived, they found the villa well alight.
The 26-year-old female occupant managed to escape unhurt.
However, the home was completely destroyed in the blaze, which police are treating as suspicious. They established a crime scene on Saturday night and continued their examinations yesterday.
Initial investigations suggest the fire started in the carport, and appears to have been deliberately lit.
