Four car garage fire - Claymore

Published: 18 Feb 2022 11:22pm

St Andrews Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) crews have extinguished four garages alight at Campbeltown in Sydney's South West overnight.

Thanks to the firefighter's quick actions, the blaze was contained to the garages and the vehicles inside within one hour at Proctor Way, Claymore shortly after midnight.

One vehicle was totally destroyed and the garage is badly damaged.

FRNSW crews returned to the property this morning to assess the structural stability of the garages to allow investigators to determine the cause and origin of the fire.

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.
