One person has been found dead after a house was destroyed by fire in a regional Queensland town on Wednesday night.

Emergency crews were called to a Toowoomba home in Doyle St at 11.15pm on Wednesday night, arriving to a “well-involved” blaze.

Crews were at the scene until early Thursday morning to dampen the blaze, uncovering the body in the process.

A Queensland Police spokesperson confirmed the body had been found during a search of the scorched property.

“A crime scene was declared just before midnight as officers work to establish the case of the blaze,” they said.

“A person was located deceased within the house, however identification processes are still ongoing.”

Anyone who may have further information is urged to contact police.

More to come.
