August 19 – Multiple units from the NSW RFS and Fire & Rescue NSW were responded to a reported structure fire. On arrival, crews found a large structure well alight along with vehicles and sections of the bush. The fire was fanned by strong winds which caused spot fires to occur over 100M away from the house. Three occupants and their pets narrowly escaped unharmed and this call was initially for persons reported inside.
