Concerned neighbours in a Riverina street peeled back their curtains on Wednesday night to see one of their street's homes blazing in the night.
At 11:02pm on Wednesday, emergency services were flooded with reports of a house fire on McNabb Crescent in North Griffith.
Griffith Fire and Rescue NSW [FRNSW] crews attended the scene, where they found the dwelling "well alight" and already significantly destroyed.
Fire crews then spent the next 15 minutes extinguishing the blaze, however the building was almost completely destroyed by the time the fire was put out.
Griffith FRNSW captain Danielle McKay said the home's windows were boarded up and she believed it had recently been vacated.
Ms McKay said it was not clear how or where the fire started.
