TARA police are investigating the cause of a suspicious house fire in the town west of Dalby early Saturday morning.

Police officers evacuated the people from neighbouring homes and residents then helped police wet down nearby buildings with garden hoses while waiting for fire crews to arrive.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

The house sustained significant damage and police remained on scene throughout Saturday attempting to ascertain the cause of the blaze.

Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.
