Published: 11 Aug 2022 09:33am
Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) crews believe a fire, which damaged a factory in Sydney's west overnight, started in an oven used to bake bread.
An automatic fire alarm alerted firefighters to the blaze in Moorebank shortly after 9:45pm.
Flames and a large smoke plume could be seen across the suburb.
100 workers were evacuated moments before the fire took hold. No injuries were reported.
More than 70 firefighters and 18 fire trucks battled for more than three hours to extinguish the fire.
HAZMAT crews monitored the impact of the smoke plume and put in place measures to prevent water run-off into nearby streams.
While the origin of the fire has been determined, FRNSW will today carry out a more detailed investigation to determine a cause.
