Neighbours have acted fast to stop the spread of fire to a West Tamworth home today, after a shed caught light.
After seeing smoke, they made a number of triple-zero calls and within minutes, firefighters arrived on-scene.
They extinguished the blaze in around 20 minutes, but the shed was completely destroyed.
The home-owner was treated for smoke inhalation and taken to hospital for observation.
The cause of the fire is being investigated.
