The body of a 14-year-old boy was pulled from a townhouse blaze in Maquarie Fields. A woman and her five children were able to escape the Macquarie Fields home but the teenage boy was unaccounted for. FRNSW deputy commissioner Jeremy Fewtrell described the inferno as “very intense”, saying two-metre flames were coming out of all the windows. And yet despite their best efforts they just couldn’t enter the building due to the intensity of the fire at that time,” deputy commissioner Fewtrell told reporters. “That’s still part of the investigation and police may provide some further details on that … there were a number of people at home,” deputy commissioner Fewtrell said.
