Kitchen fire extinguished in Chifley home

Residents were cooking at the time in the single storey, Allwood Street residence and were notified of the fire following a working smoke alarm sounding.

The three occupants of the home all safely self evacuated and contacted Emergency Triple Zero (000) at 1.30am.

Two fire pumpers, a Command Officer and the Breathing Apparatus Van were called to the scene and are now conducting ventilation and air monitoring operations. Crews will depart the scene shortly.

Fire damage contained to the stove with the remainder of the three bedroom house sustaining smoke damage.
