The raging inferno sparked along Lifford Way about 5pm, with residents saying they were alerted to the blaze after hearing “loud explosions” and seeing thick, black smoke billowing from the two-storey home.

Several fire crews and police arrived to the scene within minutes after receiving several frantic triple-zero calls, but sadly they couldn’t save the property from the blaze, which took more than two hours to extinguish.

Two young women, both believed to be in their 20s, who lived inside the home managed to escape the inferno with only minor injuries.

A St John WA spokeswoman said one of the women was treated at the scene but she was not taken to hospital.
