IT WAS hard for locals to ignore the blazing house fire that consumed Emily Morton's Ipswich home earlier this month.

The roaring flames tore through the Thorn St home within minutes, leaving it a charred shell.

And although no lives where lost, the fire robbed Ms Morton and her three housemates of all their belongings and a place to live.

Domino's Ipswich store manager Jamee Winnington-Martin was working only 200m away when the traumatic event took place on June 18.

He said he had smelt the fire from the store and was shocked when he saw the devastating scene down the road.

In that moment, Mr Winnington-Martin said he knew he had to do something to help the fire victims.

As a result, the Limestone St store will be supporting Ms Morton and her housemates by hosting a "doughraiser" event.

For each pizza sold today, the store will donate $1 towards helping the four residents get back on their feet.

As well as holding the fundraising event, the local store is also offering Ms Morton and her housemates free pizza during their time of recovery.

For more information, phone the store on 3884 6022.
