Sydney firefighters rescue Japanese and Korean men

July 2nd, 2014 . by Errol


New South Wales Fire and Rescue Commissioner Greg Mullins said firefighters were shocked to find young Japanese and Korean men cohabiting at a Sydney industrial site when they were called to the large inner-city blaze in the early hours of the morning.

The group were reportedly in their late teens and early 20s and from Japan and South Korea, although a New South Wales police spokeswoman could not confirm their identities.

“When (firefighters) arrived they thought they had a normal industrial fire, but within a couple of minutes it became a rescue operation,” Mullins told reporters.

“They were living in squalor. There were beds in old minibuses, a shipping container and an old caravan with a massive fire moving towards them.

“The firefighters had to shield the people from the heat to get them to safety. They were too frightened to move. There were 20-metre flames.”

    That sounds like a good way to make money. Why didn’t I think of that first?
