Garage Fire - Lalor Park

Published: 24 Mar 2021 04:45pm

At least one dozen Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) firefighters have extinguished a blaze in a domestic garage this afternoon on Patterson Road, Lalor Park.

The fire broke out at 4:45pm with crews from Seven Hills, Baulkham Hills, Schofields and Huntingwood responding to the numerous Triple Zero (000) calls received by the FRNSW communications centre.

Crews were confronted with significant fire activity when they arrived, but successfully extinguished the blaze before it was able to take hold or spread further throughout the building. Heat damage was sustained to some parts of the house, however the majority of the structure was saved.

NSW Police Force and NSW Ambulance both responded and investigations into the cause of the fire are continuing.

Superintendent Adam Dewberry from Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) said FRNSW is attending numerous house fires and that it was a timely reminder for residents to develop their fire escape plan.

"Now is the time for residents to check they have a working smoke alarm and that all members of the family have an awareness of calling Triple Zero (000) in an emergency," he said.
