A raging fire destroyed a house in Toormina on Monday afternoon.
Crews from Sawtell Fire and Rescue NSW attended the scene in Barcoo Court just after 2:30pm.
On arrival, fire crews found the home fully engulfed in flames.
It's understood the blaze broke out in a bedroom in the home while a mother and her young son were inside.
Fire fighters from Sawtell and Coffs Harbour were able to bring the blaze under control before it damaged neighbouring properties in the street.
The area has since been cordoned off with investigations into the cause of the blaze underway.
