Waitara residential unit carpark fire

Published: 5th May 2007

Fire crews from Hornsby, Gordon and Beecroft evacuated approximately 90 people this morning at a fire in Waitara. Numerous Triple Zero (000) calls were received early in the morning to the six-level apartment building and the first firefighters on scene found a rubbish fire in the basement carpark. The fire was quickly extinguished but due to the large amount of smoke logging on several levels residents were evacuated. Fire crews used large fans to clear the smoke and after checking the building people were allowed to return to their units.
