Electrical Kiosk Fire - Gregory Hills

Published: 24 Mar 2022 08:21am

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) crews have extinguished a fire in an electrical kiosk at Gregory Hills, in Sydney's south-west.

Firefighters from St Andrews and Narellan Fire Stations responded to a series of Triple Zero (000) calls about the blaze in Myrtle Street, shortly after 3am.

FRNSW crews deployed protective 'water curtains' to protect adjoining properties as they isolated power and doused the flames.

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.
