An elderly man has died after a fire on the Hibiscus Coast.

The Fire Service says it was alerted by neighbours of the Thorburn Rd property in Red Beach just before 9am on Thursday.

A small garden shed was engulfed in flames when fire officers arrived.

They say the blaze is not being treated as suspicious, but they and the police are investigating the cause.
