CRIME SCENE: Early morning fire engulfs Kingaroy home

UPDATED: A QPS spokesman said the Prince St house fire in Kingaroy this morning was still part of an ongoing investigation.

"At this stage it seems that the fire was possibly due to an electrical fault," he said.

"It's still a crime scene but we don't really think it's suspicious."

EARLIER: A Kingaroy home has been declared a crime scene after an early morning blaze on Sunday, March 1, 2020.

"Nobody was home at the time of the fire," she said.

"It has been declared a crime scene, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's deemed suspicious."

The spokeswoman said the cause of the fire is currently undetermined and more information would come to hand later in the day.

Fire crews rescued a dog from the premises, which was the only occupant at the property.

QFES investigators are on-scene determining the cause of the fire.
