A house was destroyed in a fire near Ophir last night.

The Omakau and Blackstone fire brigades responded to a callout on the Ida Valley-Omakau Rd about 9.50pm after the alarm was raised but by the time they arrived on the scene the house was fully involved.

A fire spokesman said it was unknown at this stage how the fire started and the incident had been referred to the fire safety officer.

Frew crews spent over three hours controlling the fire.

No-one was injured in the blaze.
