House fire a sad reminder of extra dangers in winter

Not even an hour into the winter period, Casino Rural Fire Brigade and the Fire and Rescue NSW Station 253 Casino crews were called to a house structure on fire at Mongogarie, today Wednesday, June 1.

Unfortunately, the structure was burned but the owner got out safely.

Fire crews said it was a sad reminder of the extra dangers in the winter period and a reminder to visit the Fire and Rescue website to complete the winter safety check list.

Every winter, there are more than 1100 home fires, from which around 100 fire-related injuries occur.

A fire can take hold in three minutes – yes, three minutes.

Take the time to ensure you home is safe this winter.
