Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) crews helped evacuate more than two dozen people from the scene of a large fire at Capital SMART Chatswood on Sydney's lower north shore according to a report on the Fire and Rescue NSW website.

Flames engulfed two cars on the lower floor of the workshop in McCabe Place around 11.45am on 21 July.

Six fire trucks, including Hazard Materials crews, arrived at the scene to find large volumes of black smoke issuing from the property. Firefighters quickly gained control of the blaze, helping to evacuate 15 people from the workshop and another 10 workers from adjacent businesses.

Two people were treated for smoke inhalation by NSW Ambulance paramedics at the scene. No-one was injured in the incident.

An AMA spokesperson said: “There was a fire attended by emergency services at our Capital S.M.A.R.T Chatswood, NSW site on 21st July. Three team members were checked in hospital as a precaution but given a clean bill of health that afternoon. Three vehicles were directly impacted as a result of the fire.”
