Up to 40 firefighters are working to bring a fierce fire at a western Sydney home under control.

Ten fire trucks raced to the two-level property at Macquarie Fields after getting the call at 6.20am on Friday.

The crews are fighting to stop the blaze spreading to adjoining premises and there's been no reports of residents at the house, a NSW Fire & Rescue spokesman said.
