Two people have died in a house fire in Sydney’s west overnight.
Numerous fire crews arrived at a home in Glendenning just before 5 am to find a home well-alight.
Firefighters forced entry to the burning home and rescued a 74-year-old woman.
“Firefighters did rescue one occupant from the burning building under intense fire conditions,” Fire and Rescue NSW Superintendent Adam Dewberry.
“Unfortunately the person that was rescued by firefighters has not been able to be revived.
“Once smoke and heat cleared inside the property, firefighters found a second person.”
The 77-year-old was found dead inside.
“It is a tragedy,” Fire and Rescue NSW Superintendent Adam Dewberry said.
“We are asking people to make sure they have working smoke alarms.”
The fire was extinguished just before 6 am.
Police have established a crime scene and evidence will be forensically examined.
But officers do not believe the fire to be suspicious.
