Firefighters have prevented a house fire spreading to neighbouring homes in Cheltenham.

Multiple Triple Zero calls were received for a house fire on Nepean Hwy just before 5pm, so extra trucks were despatched.

On arrival the first crews found the single storey brick and timber house well involved in fire and due to an aggressive attack the fire was knocked down quickly, under control within 20 minutes.

It has been determined that the house was unoccupied, however may have had squatters in it recently.

A Community Advice was issued due to the impact on traffic and smoke in the area.

The fire has been deemed suspicious so Police will be investigating.
