MFB firefighters have rescued three puppies from a house fire in Delahey this morning.

Crews were called to the house in Longfellow Drive at 11am and arrived on scene in about five minutes to find the garage on fire and flames spreading to the roof of the adjacent house.

The occupant of the house had self-evacuated prior to MFB's arrival but crews were told that three dogs were still inside.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus entered the burning building, rescuing the dogs and attacking the flames.

They managed to get the blaze under control within 30 minutes.

MFB fire investigators are currently on scene investigating the cause of the incident.

The house occupant has been treated on scene by paramedics.
