Factory fire on Sydney's Northern Beaches
A fire started at a board shop at Collaroy shortly after closing time last night. At about 8pm, emergency services were called to the Wind Surf N Snow factory on Anzac Avenue, Collaroy. The factory is located just off Pittwater Road.
An estimated 100 residents from nearby houses, units, and businesses were evacuated as a precaution while officers fought the fire. It was extinguished by 10:45pm. No one was injured.
Wind Surf N Snow doesn't manufacture equipment on site, they primarily import equipment such as kiteboards, SUPs, and more recently foil boards.
The estimated bill for lost stock is $250,000.
Officers from Northern Beaches Police Area Command established a crime scene and commenced inquiries.
