Police are questioning a man after two people, including a child, died in a house fire in Tamworth in north-western NSW.
Emergency services were notified around 5:30am this morning after the home in suburb of Hillvue caught alight.
Police said two bodies were found inside the property while another woman and a seven-year-old child were taken to Tamworth Hospital after sustaining burns.
Firefighters said the bodies of an adult and a child were found inside the burnt house.
Neighbour Bernadette Wood said she saw the house engulfed in flames in the early hours.
"I woke up this morning to use the bathroom to use and realised their house was on fire," Ms Wood said.
"Flames were coming out the front window — they were fairly big — and there's obviously a bunch of gum trees out in this area."
Authorities have set up a crime scene at the property.
More to come.
