Fire in a fitness centre at South Granville

Published: 30th August 2007

Firefighters from Chester Hill, Guildford, Lidcombe, Silverwater, Liverpool and Parramatta were called to a fire in a fitness centre in the early hours of this morning. On arrival at the three level building in Wellington Road at South Granville firefighters found the blaze on the second floor. Crews used a thermal imaging camera to assist in locating the fire as the building was heavily smoke logged. While crews extinguished the fire other crews carried out a search of the building. After extinguishing the blaze firefighters ventilated the building, used a gas detector to ensure the air was clear and assisted with the cleanup of water to minimise further damage.
