Construction Site Fire and Explosions

The fire ignited by a powerful blow torch resulted in a massive blaze and evacuation of nearby buildings at Circular Quay recently.

Plumes of smoke filled the city sky as the fire on the demolition site blazed.

The fire also resulted in multiple explosions of gas cylinders and 13 people being treated on the scene for respiratory problems.

Dozens of fire fighters battled the blaze and removed the remaining cylinders affected by heat to prevent further explosions.

Fire fighters were able to prevent any significant risk of scaffolding collapsing.
