House Fire - Dubbo

Published: 08 Apr 2021 12:08pm

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) are currently on scene at a house fire that broke out just after 12pm today on Highview Place, Dubbo.

Arriving crews found a shed well alight upon arrival, with properties on either side threatened by the spread of fire. NSW Police Force and NSW Ambulance both responded to provide assistance while FRNSW firefighters got to work to extinguish the blaze.

Due to the intensity of the fire, the shed structure collapsed, however no injuries were reported, and the cause of the blaze remains under investigation.

Firefighters reported the fire to be under control just after 1pm, and will remain on scene for some time into the afternoon.

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.
