House fire at Willoughby

Published: 15th June 2007

Early this morning firefighters from Willoughby, Lane Cove and Crows Nest were called to a fire in a house in Marlborough Road at Willoughby. The first fire crews to arrive were told that there was still a young girl trapped inside the house. Firefighters, wearing breathing apparatus, used a fire hose to suppress the flames and access the room that was on fire. Tragically the fire crew found the young girl had died. The fire was contained to the room in which it started and was extinguished quickly minimising further damage. The cause of the fire is being investigated.
