On the 27th of April, multiple 000 calls were received to a petrol station alight in Windsor, NSW. A corvette had finished filling with petrol and when the owner started the car next to the bowser, it erupted into flames.
Western Australia’s Department of Fire & Emergency Services has launched their Instagram presence with a bang. We were lucky enough to grab a bunch of their photos before they went up, take a look at these shots. .
They – are – fantastic.
The Mount Compass fire in South Australia kept crews busy as fire ripped through grass and scrub. At one point the CFS issued an emergency warning as the fire threatened several houses.
Firefighters were faced with difficult conditions, including wall collapses and 3 firies were hospitalised with non life threatening injuries due to falling debris.
We’ve collected photos from stations & photographers and put them into this mega post!
In 37c heat, Sydney firies were called to a factory fire in Seven Hills and on arrival found a large complex of structures alight. Explosions and structural collapses kept over 26 fire appliances busy as they worked to extinguish the fire.

These are some of the best fireground photos we’ve seen this year. This really does show the brutal conditions firies were working under!
