Kitchen Fire - Campbelltown
Published: 15 Jan 2021 12:58pm
Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) extinguished a kitchen fire in a townhouse on Sturt Street, Campbelltown after a Triple Zero (000) caller reported an alarm operating and smoke issuing from the home at 12.58pm.
Crews from Campbelltown and Rosemeadow fire stations arrived shortly after and quickly extinguished a fire in the kitchen preventing further damage to the structure.
The home was unoccupied at the time of the incident and it is unclear as to what caused the fire.
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)."
