Shop Fire - Fairfield West

Published: 29 Jan 2022 10:28am

Firefighters have prevented a shop fire in a two-level block from spreading to neighbouring properties at Fairfiest West in Greater Western Sydney earlier today.

Fire and Rescue (FRNSW) quickly accessed the building and located the seat of the fire as crews arrived at Rawson Street just before 10:30 am.

First arriving firefighters worked to extinguish the fire while other crews provided emergency medical care to an occupant suffering smoke inhalation.

Salvage and overhaul operations are ongoing.

Superintendent Adam Dewberry from Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) 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.
