FIRE has gutted a weatherboard home on Finlayson Crescent in Traralgon this morning.

Four CFA crews attended the scene after receiving the call about 6am and brought the blaze under control within 20 minutes.

The Express understands the occupant of the property wasn’t home.

There are no reports of injuries at this stage.

The Fire Investigations Unit will visit the scene later today.

The CFA said local residents in the area of the house fire are asked to close their doors and windows to minimise any effects from smoke.
