A resident returned from an afternoon shopping trip to find his 30 square home engulfed in flames.
He made several unsuccessful attempts to enter the house before CFA crews arrived. He was uninjured.
12 trucks from Wandin, Silvan, Seville, Hillcrest, Gruyere and Yellingbo worked on the blaze for 45 minutes. Crews remained at the scene for several hours dousing hot spots.
While a cause is yet to be determined, the fire is not suspicious.
