Another fire strikes a western Sydney nursing home

Published on

Up to 36 residents at a Liverpool aged care facility were evacuated last Thursday after an electrical switchboard sparked a fire.

Firefighters were able to quickly contain the blaze, before using a thermal imaging camera to look for more fires in the roof area. A gas detector was also used to check the air quality inside the facility.

It’s the eighth fire at a nursing home or village we have reported on this year.
