A man has been killed in a house fire in Geelong's north as fire crews continue to battle another blaze in Melbourne's south east.
The 39-year-old man was pulled unconscious from the Hamlyn Heights home in Beulah Street about 12pm.
CFA members tried to revive the man but he died at the scene.
A CFA spokesman said four fire trucks attended the blaze and the house was filled with smoke when firefighters tried to save the man.
A Victoria Police spokeswoman said the fire was not believed to have been suspicious.
Meanwhile, more than a dozen fire crews are battling a large blaze tearing through two double-storey houses in Beaumaris.
The fire began at a house in Wells Road shortly after 1.30pm, before spreading to a neighbouring property.
Crews from the Metropolitan Fire Brigade battled for more than an hour to bring the blaze under control.
CFA firefighters were also called to assist.
MFB has advised of thick smoke clouds coming from the area.
Paramedics were at the scene shortly before 2pm.
“We'll be standing by there for some time before the fire brigade clears the site,” an ambulance spokesman said.
