A Breeza property has narrowly avoided disaster after a shed caught fire on Thursday morning.
Emergency services were called to the Bulunbulun Road property at 11.55am after reports a shed had caught fire.
Upon arrival, crews found the shed contained several gas cylinders which had exploded.
Gunnedah Fire and Rescue 314 Deputy-captain Andrew Johns said Fire and Rescue and Rural Fire Service (RFS) crews worked to bring the fire under control.
“The shed contained several gas cylinders that exploded as a result of the fire,” Deputy-captain Johns said.
“With some great work by our crew, the crews from 452 Tamworth, 508 West Tamworth and the RFS, we were able to bring the fire under control pretty quickly.
“We were also well supported by police and ambulance crews at the scene as well.”
An Ambulance NSW spokesperson said no one was injured in the incident.
“Our role was to offer support at the scene,” the spokesperson said.
“Luckily in this instance no one was injured in the fire and the fire crews were able to bring the fire under control with minimal risk to themselves.”
Deputy-captain Johns said HAZMAT crews would clean up the site throughout the day.
“Despite the great efforts of fire crews I would say the shed will be structurally impacted due to the fire,” he said.
“HAZMAT are currently conducting testing around the area to ensure the area is safe to hand back.
“I’d say they will be there for a while this afternoon.”
Investigations into the cause of the fire are continuing.
