House Fire - Wheeler Heights

Published: 28 Jun 2022 01:57pm

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) extinguished a house fire in Wheeler Heights on Sydney's Northern Beaches earlier today.

FRNSW received numerous Triple Zero (000) calls about the property on Rose Avenue just before 11:00 am.

The fire had started on the back deck of the two-storey residence and spread to the living room and the roof.

Firefighters quickly gained control of the blaze and stopped the fire from spreading any further.

Two people self-evacuated from the property.

One person was treated on scene for smoke inhalation by NSW Ambulance.

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.
