Home destroyed in Back Forest fire


At approximately 10:30 last night multiple appliances from #NSWRFS and #FRNSW were responded to a structure fire on Bolong Road, Back Forest. 

First arriving crews from Shoalhaven Heads were confronted with a large two-story structure, fully involved in fire, multiple venting gas cylinders and extreme heat.

Firefighters in breathing apparatus immediately got to work extinguishing the blaze while multiple appliances shuttled water between the nearest fire hydrants and the incident scene.

During the height of the incident, appliances in attendance were Shoalhaven Heads Pumper, Shoalhaven Heads 1, Cambewarra 1A, West Nowra 1, Broughton Vale 2, Greenwell Point 1, Tomerong 2, Gerringong Pumper, Shoalhaven G1, FRNSW P405, CT405, NSW Police, Ambulance NSW and Endeavour Energy.

Crews have also returned to the scene this morning to overhaul any remaining hotspots and to assist with Fire Investigation. 

The cause of the blaze is currently unknown.
