Kurnell fuel odour - Kurnell

Published: 07 Apr 2022 07:52am

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) crews, at the scene of a flooding incident at Kurnell in Sydney's south, say there is no risk of danger, despite the smell of fuel in the air.

Significant rainfall overnight has filled a refinery retention pit with water, mixing with fuel residue at the site and creating a pungent odour in the area.

FRNSW Hazmat specialists have been at the scene, along with NSW Police, the State Emergency Service, Rural Fire Service and other authorities, working together to assess and deal with the situation, and allay community fears.
