The fire was contained to the side-by-side abandoned houses and the scene was handed to NSW Police for investigation.

Superintendent Scott Dodson said the incident 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.
