Fire and Rescue New South Wales (FRNSW) crews have saved a house from burning down this morning at Bondi, in Sydney.
The fire was caused by an electrical fault in a fridge located in a storage area underneath the Fletcher Street residence.
Crews attacked the flames and prevented the blaze from spreading throughout the home.
One occupant was treated at the scene by paramedics for smoke inhalation and minor burns.
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.
