A family of four escaped uninjured after their Yarrambat home was destroyed by fire this morning.

CFA was called to the Youngs Road property about 5.40am and found the large house fully alight on arrival.

It took more than 40 firefighters almost an hour and a half to control the fire, which has totally destroyed the house.

The family was alerted to the fire by their smoke alarm.

A fire investigator will be on scene this morning to establish a cause.

Crews from Doreen, Whittlesea, Yarrambat, Plenty, Diamond Creek, Eltham and Bayswater attended.
