Firies extinguish kitchen fire in Campbelltown

Firefighters are reminding locals to 'keep looking while cooking' after they extinguished a kitchen fire in Campbelltown today.

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) say firies attended a kitchen fire in a townhouse on Sturt Street, Campbelltown after a Triple Zero (000) caller reported an alarm operating and smoke issuing from the home at 12.58pm.

Campbelltown and Rosemeadow fire station crews arrived shortly after and quickly extinguished a fire in the kitchen of the home preventing further damage to the structure.

The home was unoccupied at the time of the incident and it is unclear as to what caused the fire.

FRNSW says the leading cause of house fires in NSW is leaving cooking unattended.

A Fire and Rescue NSW spokesman said it was important the community remembered to "keep looking when cooking".

"If your cooking catches fire never use water to put out a fat or oil fire, turn off the stove if it is safe to do so and call Triple Zero (000)," the spokesman said.
