Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus quickly entered the house to search for occupants.
Luckily, no one was inside at the time.
Crews got the blaze under control within half an hour but have spent the night making sure the property was safe.
The fire is being treated as suspicious and Victoria Police will investigate.
