Emergency services were called to the home in Euroka Street, Walgett at about 5.30am (AEDT) on Saturday following reports of a fire.

Human remains were found in the property after the blaze was finally extinguished at about 8am.

Police believe the body is that of a 69-year-old man.

Investigators have established a crime scene but are yet to determine the cause of the fire.
