Fifteen fire crews doused the flames at the home on Yeats Way, Mt Roskill.

The three occupants who were inside escaped to a neighbour's house shortly before 2am, a Fire Service spokesperson said.

They said the three had been checked over by paramedics and were unharmed.

The spokesperson said embers from the burning house were reported to be falling on properties in nearby Hillsborough Road.
