Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) battled a house fire in Whitby Mews, Bellambi overnight.
Just after 1:15 am, crews arrived at the scene to find smoke and flame issuing from the townhouse.
More than 24 firefighters quickly bought the fire under control and managed to protect adjoining properties from the blaze.
Neighbours were evacuated from their houses as a safety measure and no injuries were reported.
With Fire and Rescue NSW crews attending multiple house fires this week, Superintendent Scott Dodson said it was a timely reminder for residents to develop their fire escape plan.
“Now is the time for residents to check they have a working smoke alarm and that all members of the family have an awareness of calling Triple Zero (000) in an emergency” he said.
