Kitchen Fire - The Ponds

Published: 14 Sep 2020 01:05pm

Fire and Rescue NSW crews from Schofields and Kellyville Fire Stations were called to a home on Paddock St, The Ponds shortly after 1pm this afternoon after reports of a house fire.

On arrival, crews discovered a fire in the kitchen of a single storey home.

Firefighters worked quickly to control the blaze, which was extinguished at approximately 1:30pm.

Once extinguished, crews checked that no fire had extended into the roof before rendering the area safe and handing the premises back to the residents.

No injuries were reported.

Superintendent Adam Dewberry from Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) said the leading cause of house fires in NSW is leaving cooking unattended and it was important the community remembered to keep looking when cooking.

"If your cooking catches fire, never use water to put out a fat or oil fire, turn off the stove if it is safe to do so and call Triple Zero (000)."
