Firefighters are battling a fire at a chemical storage facility in Sydney’s west, with the blaze spreading to adjoining properties.
About 120 firefighters are on the scene at St Marys in a bid to contain the fire.
One man has been treated for serious burns to multiple areas of his body.
The man has been taken to Royal North Shore Hospital in a serious condition.
“Paramedics were confronted with a major fire and found a male patient in his 30s with serious burns to multiple areas of his body,” NSW Ambulance Acting Inspector Gregory Marshall said.
