**VISION ALERT** Wrecking yard inferno - Revesby

Published: 11 Jun 2024 04:51pm

More than 80 Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) firefighters are slowly starting to get the upper hand of a large structural fire at Revesby in Sydney’s south-west.

Crews have managed to stop the fire from spreading to adjoining properties in Fitzpatrick Street however the fire continues to burn in the centre of the building which is full of dismantled cars and car parts.

Vehicles are stacked on top of one another, making it difficult for firefighters to get to the seat of the fire.

Specialist HAZMAT crews are on scene monitoring air quality and nearby residents are advised to keep their windows and doors closed until the fire is extinguished.

FRNSW is monitoring the water run off to minimise any contaminants going into the waterways.

The situation is stable but the blaze is expected to burn for a number of hours due to the difficult access.

All persons are accounted for and there are no reported injuries.

The incident is impacting peak hour traffic in the area, with one westbound lane closed for emergency services vehicles. Motorists are advised to avoid the area.
