A fire that badly damaged a family home in Richmond, Nelson is being investigated.

Fire crews were called to a single-story residential building on Gladstone Rd in Richmond just after midnight on Friday.

A fire services spokesman said there was initial concern that a person was inside the home but all property occupants were accounted for.

A fire investigator was sent to the scene on Saturday morning.

The fire is being treated as non-suspicious.

The house was badly damaged in the blaze and police are supporting the family at this time.
