A man suffered burns after a fire broke out at his Ensay house in the early hours of this morning (Friday).

CFA was called to the Great Alpine Road property about 4.50am and the cottage was fully involved in fire.

District 11 RDO Gavin Parker said the occupant had been woken by a working smoke alarm in the house.

However he suffered burns to his hands, face, ears and airways when he opened a door in the burning house and was airlifted to hospital.

Mr Parker said a Fire Investigator would attend to establish a cause, but it has not been deemed suspicious.

The cottage was totally destroyed.
