At 11.44am on Saturday 1 October 2022, firefighters from Narre Warren and Berwick CFA brigades were paged to a reported house fire on Wool Shed Road, Narre Warren South.


When the firefighters saw the size of the smoke column, they immediately requested an additional fire truck from Cranbourne brigade. The Narre Warren brigade crew arrived within seven minutes and immediately launched an external attack on the fire.

On arrival the top level of the two-storey house was well alight, and with the help from the Berwick crew firefighters quickly stopped the fire from spreading and achieved a prompt knockdown.

Firefighters requested additional support of a ladder platform from Fire Rescue Victoria to assist with the second storey fire.

The house was evacuated quickly, however one man aged in his twenties suffered burns and was transported to hospital by Ambulance Victoria.

It took firefighters 17 minutes to bring the fire under control and almost two hours to fully extinguish it.

The fire damaged both levels of the property and, combined with water and smoke damage, the home was destroyed.

On scene were Narre Warren and Berwick CFA brigades, FRV Station 92 (Cranbourne), FRV Station 87 (Dandenong), Victoria Police, Ambulance Victoria, City of Casey (Building Surveyor’s team) as well as electrical and gas agencies.

Captain of Narre Warren brigade and Incident Controller Travis Carter praised the local community that provided support in the initial response and cared for the family who lived at the property in their time of need.
