It was a busy shift for the city's firefighters who dealt with a car fire just hours after attending a crash.
On Sunday at 9.15pm, Turvey Park Fire and Rescue attended a vehicle fire in Fernleigh Road.
"It was extinguished about 20 minutes later," said FRNSW Superintendent Stewart Alexander.
"Car fires are a very dangerous incident, and they cause a great deal of concern as it is people's property being destroyed.
"It affects their lifestyle and sometimes their livelihood."
Superintendent Alexander said it is worrisome considering the bushland is quite dry, and fires can spread quickly.
Quick action by the crew prevented the fire from spreading to bush and grass nearby by unfortunately the vehicle could not be saved.
Police are investigating the incident. Inspector Maggie Deall said the car had been parked by the owner, and after he left it was set alight.
