The Lake Macquarie community is rallying around a family who lost everything in a house fire at the weekend.

The home on Martinsville Road was completely gutted in the blaze, which took hold just before midday on Sunday.

Volunteers from the Rural Fire Service, along with Fire and Rescue NSW managed to extinguish the flames before it could spread to any neighbouring structures.
