Four people have escaped unharmed after their home was destroyed by fire overnight.

Emergency services were called to the house in South Kolan on Hill End Road just after 7 o'clock to find it fully engulfed in flames as parts of the structure began to collapse.

It took two urban and four rural fire crews just under an hour to control the blaze- however 80 per cent of the home was completely destroyed.

Police say the cause of the fire is not suspicious.
