Emergency services were called to a property on Plateau Drive, in Fitzroy, about 6.45pm.

The house was well-involved when crews arrived, he said.


"There were initial fears there maybe occupants in the house but all have been accounted for.''

The Fire Service said a female patient had been taken to hospital. The patient's age has not been released.
