Valentines day in turned out to be quite the day for Western Sydney firefighters, responding to a bushfire which had spread to a neighbouring house and then a persons reported house fire in a separate location at the same time. Check out this video of the primary search and photos of the two incidents!
Tamworth firies responded to reports of a building fire and on arrival found a local trucking company with heavy fire showing through the roof. The building, which contained pallets of explosive material and aerosols, was totally destroyed by the fire.
Crews from 462 Mayfield West and 357 Lambton Fire & Rescue NSW were responded to reports of a building fire and on arrival, found a recycling compound with heavy smoke and fire showing. Initially crews were hampered by multiple locked gates and had to force entry to begin fire operations.
Here is some great fireground video coming from Gelorup VFB over in Western Australia. Safe to say, that looks like it was rather warm. We spoke to them about the clip, here's what they had to say.
We spoke with Bunbury VFB from Western Australia about a recent out of area deployment they went on, flown in to work on a large bush fire burning in the Pilbara. They battled long nights, hot weather, deteriorating conditions and huge distances on foot. Sounds like a lot of hard yakka by all those crews working that fire. Some great photos attached to this one as well!
These could well be contenders for best photos of the year! Taken by the crew of Newman VFRS, they show Tom Price BFB & Newman VFRS working together in tough conditions to drop in a backburn ahead of an approaching fire front. Great photos and great work out there. Stay safe!
032 Mt Druitt were responded to reports of a structure fire in Carlisle Ave, Hebersham and on arrival found a granny flat well alight with exposures. This was the third house fire for their shift - the cause of the fire is being investigated.
There was no cover charge and tickets were available at the door for this sweet foam party in Dunheved recently. One firefighter was overheard saying he hadn't seen anything like this "since the late 90's"!
Now that is a sight! Have a go at what Roebourne was looking at as they drove out of town towards this job. Impressive video! Well done to all the crews that attended this one, stay safe!
Photos & Video! On the 18th of July 2016, Station 295 Forster were called to a reports of a "Grass Fire" at the corner of Little St and Mark St, Forster. On arrival, what they found was certainly something more significant than what was reported. What they found was thousands of oyster racks well alight!
