Just before 8 pm last night, Fire and Rescue NSW received numerous calls to a shopfront fire within the QVB Building on York St, Sydney.

Firefighters arrived within four minutes of the initial call and found a shop on fire.

Shortly after, firefighters had hose lines directed onto the fire and prevented it from spreading into the neighbouring stores.

Firefighters remained for a short time and handed the scene over to building management and NSW Police.

Superintendent Scott Dodson said this is a timely reminder that calling Triple Zero (000) for a fire emergency can be the difference between life and death, or a building or other property being saved or destroyed.

The Triple Zero (000) service is the quickest way to get the right resources from emergency services to help you. It should be used to contact Police, Fire or Ambulance services in life-threatening or time-critical situations.
