A 31-YEAR-OLD man is in Orange Hospital in a stable condition with burns to his legs following a house fire in Bowen on Thursday morning.
Fire and Rescue NSW Duty Commander Inspector Chris Andrews said numerous triple-0 calls were received about the blaze at a home on Lewana Place.
"An adult male who was a resident of the home suffered burns to his legs and feet and also smoke inhalation," he said.
"He was treated on scene and then transported [to hospital] by NSW Ambulance."
Inspector Andrews said 40 per cent of the home was severely damaged by fire.
"One bedroom was fully involved [in fire] at the front of the house and the fire had spread into a second bedroom and into the roof cavity, but it didn't come through the roof tiles," he said.
The blaze was brought under control by 8.31am, with the fire extinguished by 10.03am.
A NSW Ambulance spokesman said that two adults and five children were in the property at the time, but the man was the only person injured.
The cause of the fire is not believed to be suspicious.
