Fire and Rescue Superintendent Adam Dewberry told media: “Firefighters did rescue one occupant from the burning under intense fire conditions and handed that occupant over to the paramedics.”

Mr Dewberry added: “Unfortunately, the person that was rescued by firefighters has not been able to be revived. Once the smoke and heat cleared in the property, firefighters found a second person. The cause and origin of this fire is being investigated by police and fire investigators. It is a developing incident. It is a tragedy.”

Emergency crews have also reminded people to make sure that they have working smoke alarms.

NSW Police have established a crime scene and are now searching the burnt home for clues.
