Police investigating suspicious house fire at Muswellbrook


Police are treating a fire that destroyed a Muswellbrook home overnight as suspicious.

Fire and Rescue NSW crews from Aberdeen and Muswellbrook as well as the Edinglassie Rural Fire Brigade were called to the home on Wybong Way near Wollombi Road just after 9 o'clock following reports of a house fire.

Crews arrived to find heavy smoke issuing from the building, they gained entry and worked to extinguish the blaze but unfortunately the house suffered extensive damage.

No one was home at the time so no one was injured.

Investigations into the fire are continuing.
