Three housing units have been completely destroyed by fire which broke out in Narromine on Wednesday afternoon.

At about 2.07pm emergency services were called to a blaze which broke out at a block of units on Ellengerah Street in Narromine.

One person suffered from minor burns and was taken to hospital.

It took crews about six hours to contain the blaze.

A Fire and Rescue NSW spokesperson said the fire spread fast and their focus was protecting the properties on either side.

Emergency services attending included Fire and Rescue NSW Narromine, Trangie and Delroy, Hazmat, the Rural Fire Service, Police and NSW Ambulance.

Crews were also assisted by Cobar's new Fire and Rescue NSW bulk water tanker which was passing through town.

Police are investigating the cause of the blaze.
