The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Rescue Pumper 57 (Wentworthville)
In 37c heat, Sydney firies were called to a factory fire in Seven Hills and on arrival found a large complex of structures alight. The response quickly escalated to end up at a 10th alarm, drawing crews from all over Sydney to assist.
Multiple large explosions were reported and several buildings suffered major collapses as the firefighting continued. Firefighters from Sydney & surrounds were responded to assist in firefighting and for crew rotation and rehabilitation due to the hot weather.
