Fire fighters obstructed, Ambulance damaged at party in Rossmore

Investigations are underway after several intoxicated youths at a house party obstructed fire fighters and later poured petrol over an Ambulance at Rossmore overnight, NSW Police say.

About 11.40pm today, emergency services were called to a house party on Devonshire Road following reports a 14-year-old boy had fallen into a bonfire.

The boy was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance Paramedics for burns to his face and was taken to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead where he remains in a stable condition.

Fire & Rescue NSW officers attempting to extinguish the bonfire were forced to call for police assistance when several partygoers became aggressive and refused to let them put out the fire.

Officers from Green Valley Local Area Command attended and were able to move the partygoers back into the house while the fire was extinguished.

About 1.45am tomorrow, a NSW Ambulance Paramedic called for police assistance after he returned to the scene to collect his Ambulance.

Several youths from the party became aggressive and poured petrol over the Ambulance – which initially had been left at the scene, when the paramedics drove the 14-year-old to hospital in the other Ambulance.

Police attended and arrested an 18-year-old man and have taken him to Green Valley Police Station where he is currently assisting police with inquiries.

Investigations into the incidents are continuing and police are urging anyone with information to contact Green Valley Police Station on (02) 9607 1799 or Crime Stopers.
