House Fire - Prestons

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) extinguished a garage fire in Prestons in south-west Sydney overnight.

Numerous Triple Zero (000) calls were received about a house well alight in Calabria Street around 8.30 pm.

When crews arrived at the home, they found a garage containing two vehicles well alight with the fire spreading to the main house. 

More than 20 firefighters battled the blaze and contained the fire within 30 minutes.

The garage and adjoining kitchen were totally destroyed by fire while the remainder of the house suffered smoke damage.

There were no reported injuries.

Investigations are continuing today into what caused 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.
