It's still not yet known what caused a home to go up in flames at Kangaroo Flat yesterday.

Emergency crews were called to the scene on Railway Street around 8:45am yesterday to find the home well alight, before firefighters controlled the blaze within half an hour of being on scene.

A man was home at the time but was alerted to the fire by his smoke alarm, allowing him to quickly vacate his home without injury.

The property has sustained significant damage after the early morning fire.
