A Phillipstown house was destroyed overnight in a suspicious fire.

Firefighters were called to a two-storey house in Bordesley St at 12.30am.

A Fire Service spokesman said the fire was "quite developed" when two trucks arrived at the house.

"It was well ablaze. They called for another truck from Woolston."

There were no reports of anyone in the dwelling, he said.

Firefighters fought the fire for more than two hours before getting it under control.

The fire was being treated as "suspicious" and fire safety officers were investigating.
