A Burradoo home sustained significant damage after a fire broke out on May 31.
No-one was injured when a blaze began in an Elizabeth Street home, just before 12pm.
Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) Southern Highlands Duty Commander Alan Gerrard said the residents had left for the day and were not inside when the blaze began.
Witnesses on the street reported hearing an explosion shortly before passersby noticed smoke coming from the roof of the house.
FRNSW crews from Bowral, Moss Vale and Mittagong received the call just after 12pm and were on scene in about ten minutes.
The home was well alight when crews arrived.
“Crews from the three stations worked together to contain the damage, which was limited to the front half of the building,” Duty Commander Gerrard said.
The fire was extinguished by about 12.30pm.
Hume Local Area Command Chief Inspector Brendan Bernie said the incident was under investigation by Bowral Police detectives.
“Police will arrange for forensic services group officers to attend the scene and assist with the investigation by Bowral Police,” he said.
Electricity and gas companies attended to isolate the services to the home.
Traffic in Elizabeth Street was affected for about half an hour, as police officers closed the road in front of the house to allow fire crews space to work.
