Firefighters have rescued a woman from a burning house in Dallas this afternoon.

Crews were called to the Dallas Drive address at about 2.40pm after neighbours spotted smoke coming from the property.

Firefighters arrived to find the house in flames.

They forced entry to the house and conducted a search for occupants.

They found a woman inside and removed her from the burning building.

 She was given oxygen and is being treated by Ambulance Victoria paramedics for what are believed to be non life-threatening injuries.

“It was fortunate that crews got there promptly and were able to locate the woman and get her out quickly,” said MFB Commander David Woods.

The fire has been extinguished and MFB Fire Investigators will investigate the cause of the incident.
