Fire has engulfed the garage of a home at Tuggerah, where seven fire crews have been called to bring the blaze under control.
NSW Fire and Rescue, police and ambulance were called to the scene around 2.30pm Friday where a fire had broken out in the garage of a Burbank Drive home.
Firefighters began attacking the blaze, which had moved into the roof of the home around 3pm. Two crews were tasked with bringing the fire under control, with extra manpower called in around 3.05pm.
By 3.40pm firefighters were working on controlling hotspots in the structure, which, a NSW Fire and Rescue spokesperson said, had sustained a collapse in part of the roof.
One firefighter has been treated for minor heat irritation, the spokesperson said, but was later cleared by paramedics.
A spokesperson for NSW Ambulance said it appeared a gas cylinder had exploded in the building.
No other injuries have been reported.
