A FIRE, which appears to have started in a kitchen, has caused significant damage to a house on Giinagay Way.

The blaze on Monday was extinguished by NSW Fire and Rescue crews from Coffs Harbour who teamed up with firefighters from Urunga and Bellingen.

A NSW Fire and Rescue media spokesman said crews were alerted to the fire just after 1pm when it was reported smoke was rising from the ceiling space.

He said two crews wearing breathing apparatus "knocked the fire down”.

The spokesman said there were no reports of the occupants being inside or any injuries.

It is not yet clear what caused the fire.

The spokesman said the scene was handed over to police at 2.45pm for further investigations.

One northbound lane on the Old Pacific Highway at Shortcut Road has been closed.
