House Fire - Quakers Hill

Time of incident: 29 Nov 2021 - 7.12am

Fire and Rescue (FRNSW) crews have extinguished a large house fire and treated a resident overcome by smoke this morning at Quakers Hill in Sydney's west.

FRNSW responded to multiple calls to Triple Zero (000) around 7am, concerned people were possibly trapped inside the home.

Fire crews arrived at the Kolondong Street address to find the occupants outside the house, which was well alight.

The firefighters quickly entered the dwelling with their specialised protective gear and hoses to extinguish the blaze.

The fire had spread to the roof cavity and caused major damage to the property.

An occupant, suffering smoke inhalation, was initially treated by the medically-trained firefighters at the scene until paramedics arrived.

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.
