Firefighters had to call in a water tanker as they fought a fire that extensively damaged a house near Queenstown last night.

No-one was injured and the fire was not thought to be suspicious.

Three fire engines from Queenstown, a water tanker from Glenorchy and a Frankton-based crew were called to the blaze at Fishermans Lane, in Bob's Cove, at 10pm.

The house is in Queenstown's "red zone" - a high-risk fire area that requires a larger than usual response from emergency services.

Fire investigators will this morning attend the scene.

Southern Fire Communications shift manager Brent Dunn said the house's occupants reported a fire in the laundry.

The home in the Fortune/Bob's Cove area was well ablaze when the firefighters arrived and they contained the fire quickly, he said.
