The structure of the property was unsafe and crews had to work quickly to prevent further damage.
Luckily the two occupants of the house escaped and although shocked by their experience, there were not injured in any way.
Fire-fighters worked with a local builder using Acro Props to secure the property to ensure no further collapse occurred.
They then were able to safely isolate all amenities into the house, including gas, electric and water. The crew also disconnected the battery to the lorry.
A vehicle recovery team will now remove the vehicle and a structural engineer is due to check the structure of the property.
The crews were at the scene for more than an hour.
