FIRE investigators from Toowoomba will today look into the cause of a blaze that destroyed a house in south-west Queensland yesterday.

The Queensland Fire and Emergency Service confirmed crews were at the scene of the incident on May St in Roma this morning.

Police shut down the street yesterday after the blaze started in the house about 11am.

The house was gutted from the flames, with some embers still smouldering today. No one was inside the home at the time.

Roma Police's Senior Sergeant Duane Frank praised the efforts of firefighters to get the blaze under control.

"The fire crews who promptly responded are to be commended, because their actions allowed all of the surrounding houses to stay safe," he said yesterday.

"Everyone who was evacuated this morning has been able to return to their homes."

Nearby resident Teagan Hoskin said strange noises alerted neighbours to the fire.

"We heard a pop and looked around to see what it was and then we saw a big puff of smoke come up the back [of the house] near my chook pen," she said.
