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. The incident was upped to a 5th alarm and drew appliances from Tamworth, Manilla, Werris Creek, Warral, Kingswood, Moore Creek, Kootingal and Utunga.
Both the NSW RFS and Fire & Rescue NSW worked for days to completely extinguish the fire.
