House Fire - Mount Victoria

Published: 10 Feb 2022 10:16pm

A house in Mount Victoria was destroyed by fire overnight.

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) firefighters arrived at the property in Victoria Street just after 10.00 pm and found fire coming through the roof of a single-level house.

Crews initially entered the home to search for occupants but withdrew from the building as the roof started to collapse.

More than 20 firefighters battled the blaze which completely destroyed the home.

All occupants were accounted for.

The cause of the fire is yet to be determined.

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.
