A fire has torn through a Sydney factory at around 2pm. Crews were responded to the Baker & Co factory on Yulong Close in Moorebank and got to work on a rapidly escalating fire. The incident ended up at a 10th alarm, bringing over 120 firies from around the greater Sydney area.

In true Sydney style, the incident absolutely crippled surrounding roads – with traffic banked up over 12km in the nearby m5 motorway. Homes and businesses were evacuated as the toxic smoke threatened schools and residents.

Baker and Co Ingredients is a supplier, who specialises in tasty filo pastry.
