Firefighters have been called to a fire at Braemar in the Southern Highlands.
Crews rushed to the Old Hume Highway just before 8 last night where they found a house well alight.
It took firefighters about an hour to control the blaze and a significant amount of damage was caused.
Fire and Rescue Spokesman Scott Dodson says the resident wasn't home at the time.
Crews will be back at the location today to investigate the cause.
