Police have confirmed a body – which has not yet been identified – has been found at the scene of a house fire in Mt Helen.

Two people, who were initially thought to be missing, have now been found safe and well. Crews were called to the house in Greenhill Road, Mt Helen at 1.30am this morning after neighbours reported hearing an explosion and seeing flames.

The fire took around 40 minutes to bring under control and the single-storey brick house has been completely destroyed. The cause of the fire is still being investigated. Three trucks and a number of support vehicles from Ballarat City, Buninyong and Sebastopol attended.
