All residents safely escaped a house fire in Burradoo thanks to their working smoke alarms.
Firefighters worked for two hours to bring a house fire under control at Eridge Park Road on July 13. Crews were called about 6am, after reports of a fire in the roof of the home.
No-one was injured. A Facebook post from Bowral Fire Station said the residents made it out safely after their smoke alarm sounded.
“This week we have received numerous calls to house fires and it really reinforces the need to make sure you have a working smoke alarm in your home,” the post said.
By 6.20am, teams from Bowral NSW Fire and Rescue were on scene working to extinguish the fire. However, it escalated about 6.30am and more resources were needed. Bowral crews were joined by Mittagong, Moss Vale and Bundanoon, and the fire was under control by 7.15am. The fire was extinguished about 8am. The Fire Investigation Unit was called to assess the home, and Bowral team members remained at the scene.
