Waste Management Fire - Wetherill Park

Published: 06 Apr 2022 01:22pm

Fire and Rescue New South Wales (FRNSW) has extinguished a large waste pile alight inside a factory at Wetherill Park, just before 11am today.

Six workers self-evacuated from the building whilst other factory staff assisted fire crews by separating the pile with machinery.

Firefighters used internal hose lines and fire hydrants to put out the blaze at the factory on David Road.

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.
