Crews from Fire and Rescue NSW Station 392 Muswellbrook and Station 208 Aberdeen kept on their toes during busy evening

FIREFIGHTERS from Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) Station 392 Muswellbrook and Station 208 Aberdeen were kept on their toes on Tuesday.

After attending a couple of false alarms at Muswellbrook Fair (4.37pm) and Calvary Muswellbrook Retirement Community (6.28pm) on July 14, the 392 members attended a rubbish fire in Tobruk Avenue.

The crew discovered two chairs alight and quickly put them out with the first aid reel.

Then, at 8.27pm, both stations responded to a house fire.

The teams found the premises full of smoke, before extinguishing the blaze and departing the scene.

Later that evening, they cleaned up a diesel spill along the New England Highway, at the intersection of Manning Street.

"It was a busy period for the crew," a FRNSW 392 Muswellbrook spokesperson said.

"We'd get back to the station, then the bells would go off again.

"But, it's a timely reminder for residents to make sure they have working smoke alarms."
