House Fire - Mount Hutton
Time of incident: 08 Oct 2021 - 3:48am
Residents have escaped injury from a house fire which Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) extinguished at Mount Hutton in Lake Macquarie overnight.
Thanks to a working smoke alarm, the residents had safely evacuated the home when crews arrived on Willow Road just before 4:00 AM.
It took firefighters more than an hour to get the blaze under control which left the house severely damaged.
Ambulance NSW and NSW Police were also in attendance.
With FRNSW attending numerous house fires, 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.
