Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : June 17th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 18, 2009 5 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Firefighters at scene of major blaze at the recycling plant in South Strathfield. ~NN711148 Trucks called in after pump woes A FIRE broke out at the Polytrade recycling plant in Madeline St, South Strathfield, last Friday at about 9.30pm. Firefighters from the Inner West as well Lakemba, Campsie and Revesby were at the recycling plant within eight minutes to extinguish the fire, which broke out in an area where papers and plastics were stored. A NSW Fire Brigades spokes- man said after trouble with water pumping, about six trucks from Kogarah were called to perform a ''relay pump''. He said no part of the building was exposed to the fire which took three hose lines to extinguish. To ensure there was no risk of toxic fumes with the burning of the plastic than with normal fires, the Hazardous Material Response Unit were on the scene. The spokesman said the cause of the fire is yet to be determined. Hunt on for Five Dock gunman POLICE are searching for a gun- man who fired a shot while rob- bing a Five Dock pharmacy on Sunday night. The armed man entered the Parramatta Rd pharmacy just be- fore 10pm and threatened an em- ployee with a gun. He ordered the employee to hand over cash from the register before firing a single round from the gun into the floor and running from the shop. He was last seen running towards Walker St. Police from Burwood station and dog unit officers carried out a search but could not find him. They seized several items as evidence. Burwood crime manager Det- Chief Insp Glen Fitzgerald is ap- pealing for anyone with any infor- mation to come forward. ''We would appeal for anyone who noticed anything out of the ordinary in the Walker St area to talk to us,'' he said. ''It doesn't matter how minor or inconspicuous it seems, we would rather hear from them than not hear from them.'' The gunman is described as between 30 and 40. He was 165cm tall and of average build and was wearing a black full- face woollen balaclava, a grey hooded jacket and black tracksuit pants. Anyone with any information is asked to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
