Country Fire Authority operations officer Scott Walters said four crews from Shepparton and Mooroopna were called to the Toolondo Court fire about 2
A shed at the rear of the house was damaged in the incident, with scorch marks visible from the outside.
Mr Walters said the fire took crews about 15 minutes to extinguish, with the risk of the blaze spreading to the house on the property a concern.
Mr Walters said the fire was not being treated as suspicious, but fire investigators were called to the scene to determine the cause of the blaze.
Neighbour John Farrow was one of four people who worked to drag a caravan away from the vicinity of the fire.
‘‘Another neighbour had just come home and she saw the smoke so she raced over and got us (to help),’’ he said.
‘‘You could see the heat marks and the smoke coming out from the roof, something has started it in the shed, that’s what it looks like.’’
The residents of the property were not home at the time of the incident.
