Fire destroys abandoned townhouses - VIDEO - Claymore

Published: 30 Sep 2022 11:38am

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) crews have been called back to two adjoining townhouses in Sydney's south-west, which were gutted by fire overnight, after rubble began to reignite.

Firefighters were called to Abrahams Road, Claymore just after midnight following reports that two double-storey buildings were engulfed in flames.

Both properties were vacant and slated for demolition.

The blaze was so fierce it took two hours of intense firefighting for it to be extinguished.

Around 8:30am, FRNSW resources were again deployed to the site after small fires began to flare among the remnants of the properties.

The reignitions have since been extinguished.

NSW Police are now investigating the cause of the fire.
