House Fire - Glenhaven

Published: 29 Sep 2020 11:18pm

Just after 11pm last night Fire and Rescue NSW was alerted to reports of a house fire in Glenhaven.

Firefighters arrived to find a large fire in the roof of a home on Glenhaven Road.

Up to forty firefighters from ten Fire and Rescue NSW stations across Sydney's North West worked for two hours to contain the fire which severely damaged the home.

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)."
