MFB and CFA worked together to combat a fire in Thomastown on Sunday morning.

Crews were called to the Linton Drive property at 3.49am on Sunday morning.

The blaze started in a double brick garage fire that is attached to a two storey brick house.

The garage was fully involved in fire and had fire penetrated the house when the first crews arrived.

Quick action from crews in Breathing Apparatus attacked the fire penetration within the house which minimised the impact of the fire to the house.  As additional crews arrived the garage fire was extinguished.

The fire took 28 minutes to bring under control.  A thorough search was conducted before it was determined that no one was home.

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