Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) firefighters from Moss Vale, Bowral and Mittagong have extinguished a House Fire on Clarence Street, Moss Vale which broke out just after 6:30am this morning.
When firefighters arrived, they were confronted with a two-storey house well alight, with intense fire activity causing the roof and some walls to collapse. NSW Police and NSW Ambulance also attended to provide assistance.
No injuries were reported as a result of the incident, however the entire structure was destroyed. While firefighters had the fire extinguished just after 9am this morning, some crews remain on scene while investigations into the cause are continuing.
With Fire and Rescue NSW crews attending a number of house fires this week, Superintendent Scott Dodson said 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.
