Factory fire at Granville

Published: 10th September 2008

This morning fire crews from Parramatta, Merrylands, Guildford, Wentworthville, Silverwater, Northmead, Rydalmere, Chester Hill, Lidcombe, Fairfield and Hazmat specialists from Greenacre battled a blaze that had engulfed a motorcycle workshop on Crescent Street, Granville. The fire was in an industrial complex that contained five units and quickly spread to adjoining units. Firefighters were able to contain the fire and protect the remaining units. The contents of the workshop were severely damaged but quick actions by crews prevented further damage to adjoining units. Fire investigators carried out investigations and a structural engineer was called to check the safety of several walls.
