A home in Sydney’s north west has been destroyed after a major fire consumed the single storey house.

Nearby students at Baulkham Hills North Public School were forced to take shelter as the neighbouring home became engulfed in flames, requiring upwards of 25 firefighters to fight the blaze.

Footage of the burning house on Bombardiere Place in Baulkham Hills shows the house’s roof collapsed, and its interior completely blackened by fire.

Fire and Rescue NSW has confirmed that the fire is now contained, and all occupants are safe.
