UPDATE Thursday:

A FIRE that tore through a Wondai home on Wednesday is not being treated as suspicious.  

A Queensland Police Service spokesman said police took initial details about the fire, which occurred on Greenview Rd.  

"We've got an open investigation, but that is standard practice for any building fire of that type," the spokesman said.  

"The investigation won't be ramped up as it normally would if it was suspicious."  

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Services spokesman said they received the call at 4.25pm.  

"It was called in as a structure fire initially," the spokesman said.  

"Four units responded.   

"Upon arrival at the house fire fighters reported the house was well alight.  

"The fire was contained to that house."  

The QFES spokesman said all occupants of the house were accounted for.   

"The fire was extinguished at 5.10pm," he said.  

"Fire fighters then worked to ventilate the area and worked to check there were no hotspots.   

"Some crews were released at 5.30pm.   

"The last crew left the scene at 8pm.

 "We did have to stay a bit longer to assist with hotspots and flair ups."    

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said while ambulances attended the scene, no one was transported to hospital.  

"There were no transports and no patients," she said.
