Thanks to @NSWRFS crews Hubert van Mierlo, Stewart Hasell & Craig Laslett who responded just before 730am to House ‪#‎Fire‬ on ‪#‎Scotland‬ Island on ‪#‎Pittwater‬, near Church Pt. Fire was contained to a laundry area, by quick thinking neighbours, who woke up occupants of the house, whilst one contained the fire from spreading with a hose until RFS crews arrived.

#Scotland Is. Brigade were first on scene, followed by ‪#‎Davidson‬ (on ‪#‎Flyer‬), ‪#‎Terrey‬ Hills, West Pittwater & 2 ‪#‎Ingleside‬ members. NSW Police, Ambulance NSW also in attendance. One person was conveyed to hospital due to minor smoke inhalation. Warringah HQ were on standby at Station for support.

Well done to the alert neighbours, they managed to save the house, as the fire was minutes away from spreading to the whole house.
