Two people have been found dead in Kilcoy sharehouse fire in Queensland

A second person has died in a fire that tore through a share house in the Queensland town of Kilcoy.

The body was pulled from the blackened remains of the Golf Links Drive home at 3pm on Sunday afternoon, after a fire broke out just after 2pm Saturday. 

One body and a staffy called Oden were retrieved earlier today, although police are yet to formally identify the two people.

The house was destroyed (pictured) before firefighters could get the fire under control 

Two other people who lived at the house were out when the fire took hold.

There's no word yet on what caused the blaze, which took over an hour to extinguish.

'We've been hampered by the structural damage to the dwelling,' Mr Green said.

'Our intention at this stage is to make sure that the scene is safe and structurally sound so that the fire investigators can get in and then start an investigation as to the cause of the fire.'

Neighbour Karl Pepito told the ABC he started screaming when the fire started, and was afraid it would leap across the fence to his house.

'I just alarmed neighbours just in case ... when the fire truck arrived we were also screaming "hey, look at the other fence, the fire is starting to jump to the other side"', he said.

What caused the fire is still unknown.
