A fire sparked by an unattended candle destroyed a home in Yanchep overnight.
Firefighters were called to Brazier Road about 10.30pmm, where a house was engulfed in flames.
It took about 12 firefighters from Osborne Park, Yanchep, Joondalup and Butler three hours to extinguish the blaze.
A Department of Fire and Emergency Services spokesman said the fire caused $150,000 damage.
No one was home at the time but an ambulance was called after a woman in a nearby house complained of breathing difficulties.
The woman, aged in her 40s, was treated for smoke inhalation.
