FIRE ripped through a Riverview home yesterday afternoon, leaving the property with substantial damage.

Queensland Fire and Rescue crews were called to the Price St home about 12.30pm.

The house had reportedly been empty in recent weeks and the structure was unoccupied when emergency services arrived.

Neighbour Corey Borchert said flames engulfed the house shortly after the fire began and threatened to spread to neighbouring properties.

He heard the windows explode and came outside to find the home across the road on fire.

"It had started to spread around the house as soon as I walked out," he said.

"It didn't take long to get from floor high to roof high. It nearly made it to the house next door. There were people everywhere."
