Home partially collapses in Sydney's north-west - Denistone
Published: 01 Sep 2022 03:23pm
Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) is working with engineers to assess a home which has partially collapsed in Sydney's north-west.
Around 12:30pm today, firefighters were called to Anzac Avenue in Denistone after the property's roof suddenly caved in, causing the external walls to push outwards.
Fortunately, no one was inside at the time.
An exclusion zone has been set up around the home, amid concerns the structure may further collapse.
FRNSW is being assisted by NSW Public Works, City of Ryde Council and NSW Police in managing the scene and maintaining public safety.
It's expected the home will be deemed 'uninhabitable' and be demolished.
