Published: 7th June 2008

This afternoon firefighters from St Marys, Penrith, Cranebrook, Dunheved, Mt Druitt, Huntingwood, Parramatta and Regentville responded to Anne Street in St Marys where smoke was pouring from a 25 000 litre tank of hot wax. Fire crews contained the fire to the one tank and cooled the surface of the tank using a hydraulic ladder fire engine and several fire hoses. The insulation surrounding the tank was removed to completely extinguish the blaze. The tank and nearby equipment suffered minor damage.
