Factory Alight Cabramatta

Published: 13th May 2009

In the early hours of this morning more than 40 firefighters responded to a major fire in a clothing factory in Chadderton Street, Cabramatta. The first crews were on scene within seven minutes and found large volumes of smoke issuing from a single level factory that was well alight. Firefighters battled intense flame and heat and a partial ceiling collapse. Aerial appliances were used to assist firefighters in containing the blaze. Firefighting was very difficult due to the highly flammable contents inside the factory. Crews brought the fire under control within two hours and the cause is under investigation.
