Factory Fire - Blacktown

Published: 04 Jul 2021 02:32am

Just after 2:30 am this morning, Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) responded to multiple Triple Zero (000) calls for a factory fire on Steel St, Blacktown.

While responding, fire crews observed a large column of smoke issuing from the area.

FRNSW arrived on scene and found a large cold storage warehouse with smoke and flame issuing from the front of the building. Firefighters began battling the blaze.

Approximately 80 FRNSW firefighters fought the fire, bringing it under control in approximately 3 hours.

Extinguishing the fire was made difficult due to the building suffering areas of collapse. Aerial firefighting appliances were utilised to extinguish the fire due to the building collapse risk.

50% of the building was totally destroyed by fire and no persons were injured.

NSW Police and NSW Ambulance were in attendance. Investigations into the cause are continuing.
