Heavy fire involved a large industrial dumpster along with surrounding materials, with flames threatening factories on either side of the fire. Crews used power saws and ground ladders to make access to the secured premises, scaling fences and cutting down gates.
On arrival, crews established that a large amount of chlorine and hydrochloric acid had been accidentally mixed together and found a number of hotel guests affected.

When the fires kicked off in Port Stephens in August 2018, Karl grabbed his mobile coffee van, phoned the local fire control center and organised to be escorted into the staging area. When he got there, he pumped out over 295 free coffees for all the firies as a thank you for their efforts!
This is an incredible rescue of a young boy who climbed his way along live power lines to end up on stop of a power-pole.
Watch the moment firies rescue him and bring him to safety.
With climbs under her belt in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, Hayley has her sights set on New York!
