A man has been taken to hospital after a house fire at Runaway Bay overnight.
The place on Deagon Dr went up in flames around 7:30pm on Thursday.
The occupants of the home managed to escape, although one man in his 50s had to be transported to the Gold Coast Uni Hospital with minor smoke inhalation.
Most of the house was destroyed in the blaze, also spreading to one neighbour's balcony and another's fence before fire fighters arrived to extinguish the flames.
Fire investigators were due to head back out the scene on Friday morning to try to determine the cause of the fire.
