Approximately 36 firefighters responded to a house fire in Sunshine West on Wednesday morning.

FRV crews were called to the Dinnell Street incident at 9:24am, after multiple callers to Triple Zero (000) reported a house engulfed in fire.

FRV crews arrived on scene to find the top level of a two story house alight.

Wearing breathing apparatus they attacked the blaze and worked to protect neighbouring houses.
