House fire image & video update
Images and video from a house fire in Springvale from 14 Jan.
Senior Station Officer Barry Nash from Springvale Fire Brigade gives us a run-down on what happened at a house fire that originally came in as a yard fire.
The fire had a heavy fuel load on the property and access was hard to gain in some areas. The thick black smoke also hampered operations and as you will see blackened a fair bit of turn-out gear.
As a precaution those who fought the fire directly were washed down and their protective gear bagged up for a thorough cleaning just incase there may have been an involvement with asbestos.
