A man has been charged with assaulting two police officers at the scene of a major house fire in western Sydney in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The emergency services were called to Shepherd Street in St Marys, 47kilometres west of the CBD, at around 3.15am to reports a home was engulfed in flames. 

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) crews arrived to find the single-storey weatherboard home well-alight. 

While they were eventually able to put out the blaze, the house was destroyed.

A 66-year-old man and his 40-year-old daughter escaped uninjured, but a 38-year-old man was arrested after trying to go into the burning home and allegedly assaulting two officers.
