Investigations are ongoing after flames tore through a house in the Riverina this morning leaving behind extensive damage.
Fire and Rescue NSW Inspector Daryl Manson said multiple 000 calls were received for a house fire on Mate Street about 6am.
"We had fire trucks from Tumbarumba, Batlow and Wagga attend," he said.
"We had four crews, 25 firefighters and assistance from the RFS in Tumbarumba as well."
Inspector Manson said luckily the house was unoccupied, however, FRNSW is treating it as suspicious and investigations are continuing.
"On arrival, it was well alight and firies got to work quickly," he said.
"Once we doused the fire, we did an internal search and were able to confirm there were no people.
"We were in attendance until 9.30 this morning."
Inspector Manson said the Mate Street home was severely damaged by fire.
"The brick shell is there, but there is massive damage there to the inside contents," he said.
Inspector Manson said a 6am fire serves as a reminder to have working smoke alarms as if there were occupants they might not have woken to the smoke.
