Body found in suspicious house fire
A body has been found after firefighters doused what is believed to be a suspicious fire at a house in Sydney's southwest.
Emergency services were called to the house on Crank Place in Elderslie about 11:40pm on Saturday.
The body was found after the fire was put out and is yet to be formally identified.
"When fire crews arrived they found a fire in the front part of the house with reports of people trapped inside," NSW Fire & Rescue Superintendent Andrew Ticehurst said.
"Firefighters immediately began attacking the fire and searching the house for the occupants."
Several people who were in the home at the time were all taken to hospital, along with two firefighters, for smoke inhalation.
Detectives are treating the fire as suspicious and are urging anyone with information to come forward.
