An elderly man has died following a house fire in Adelaide's northern suburbs in the early hours of this morning.

Key points:

  • An 89-year-old man has died in a house fire at Pooraka
  • Police do not believe the fire was suspicious
  • They are investigating a separate house fire at St Agnes, which they believe was deliberately lit

Police were called to the home on Nalpa Street in Pooraka just before 1:30am after a neighbour reported sounds of smashing glass.

Police said the home was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived.

Fire crews quickly arrived and extinguished the blaze.

When crews checked the home after the fire, they found the body of an 89-year-old man who police believe to be the occupant.

Police said the incident was not believed to be suspicious.

Fire at St Agnes house

A separate investigation has been underway into a suspicious house fire at St Agnes, in Adelaide's north-east.

Fire crews extinguished the blaze, which caused extensive damage to the home.

Police believe the fire was deliberately lit and have asked anyone who saw suspicious activity in the area or has information on the fire to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
