Fire crews extinguish building blaze at Tiona

A building was gutted by fire at a property at Tiona, south of Forster.

The incident occurred on the morning of Tuesday, September 11 and was attended to by Fire and Rescue NSW Forster and NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) crews.

Most of the contents inside the building were destroyed.

Firefighters had slight difficulty extinguishing the fire due to the structure of the internal metal walls and roof of the building.

Small LPG bottles were damaged in the blaze. They were removed and made safe away from the fire by the Tuncurry and Green Point RFS crews. 

No one was injured in the fire.

The cause of the fire is unknown.

Meanwhile, Fire and Rescue NSW Forster has encouraged residents to download the Emergency+ app.
