AN EAST Ipswich house, west of Brisbane, sustained significant damage when it caught fire early this morning.
A neighbour notified emergency services when they noticed the house on Jacaranda St was on fire at about 2.05am.
When firefighters from Ipswich and Bundamba arrived on scene two rooms at the front of the timber house were alight.
Crews contained the fire to these rooms which were severely damaged and the rest of the house sustained smoke damage.
It is understood no one was home at the time of the blaze and fire investigators will examine the scene today.
