A man has suffered critical injuries after being found inside a burning house in Seven Hills this morning.
The burning single-level building was noticed by two local council workers as they drove along Blacktown Road at about 6:20am on Wednesday.
The pair broke down the fence of the home using their truck to access the yard however they were unable to enter the home as it was well-alight and filled with intense smoke and heat.
Emergency Services arrived on the scene minutes later and Fire & Rescue fire-fighters made their way into the burning building.
A 41-year-old man was found inside lying on the floor at the back of the home. He was carried to safety and initially treated at the scene before being transported to Concord Hospital. The man is currently in a critical but stable condition and is suffering from burns and smoke inhalation.
One of the council workers was also checked by paramedics and is believed to have suffered from shock.
The house was significantly damaged during the blaze and has roped off by officers. The scene will be examined by Crime Scene officers and Fire investigators as soon as the location has been deemed safe.
The cause of the fire has not yet been determined. Anyone with information is being urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
