Fire in oven ducting in Ingleburn

Published: 15th December 2008

Firefighters from St Andrews, Ingleburn, Macquarie Fields, Busby, Riverwood, Hazmat specialists from Greenacre and the Duty Commander responded to a fire in the ducting of an industrial oven in Stennett Road, Ingleburn this evening. Fire crews were on scene in three minutes to find a fire inside 60 metres of ducting and set up fire hoses to cool the outside of the ducting. Determining the exact location and accessing the fire inside the ducting was achieved after liaising with on site technicians and through the use of thermal imaging cameras. Five fires were extinguished and atmospheric monitoring carried out. Thermal imaging cameras confirmed all traces of fire were extinguished and fire crews assisted with the clean up. Fire damage was confined to the ducting.
