Roma home destroyed in early morning blaze

UPDATE 7.30AM: ONE occupant was transported to Roma Hospital. 

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said the occupant was taken to hospital with minor spoke inhalation.

UPDATE 5.50AM: TWO occupants were inside a Roma home moments before an inferno tore through it.

Lieutenant David Jones said one occupant of a Wyndham Street home located a small fire inside an area of the home and quickly evacuated with another person.

"Our main focus was to ensure no one was injured and to protect the surrounding structures," Lt Jones said.

"When we arrived the house was engulfed so it was important we protected the surrounding areas."

A vehicle in the driveway was also destroyed by the blaze before firefighters were able to contain the fire.

Fire investigators are currently determining the cause of the fire.
