Milsons Point unit fire

Published: 29th August 2007

This morning the NSWFB received numerous Triple Zero (000) calls to a residential unit on fire in Ennis Road at Milsons Point. Fire crews from Crows Nest, Neutral Bay, The Rocks and Pyrmont responded and on arrival found a fire on the fifth floor of the building. Firefighters used fire hoses connected to the hydrants inside the building to contain and extinguish the blaze while other crews conducted a search of the unit and evacuated 16 people from surrounding units. Two people were taken to hospital. The floor was ventilated using large fans and fire crews assisted with the clean up.
