A man’s face and hand were burnt after fire broke out in the roof of a caravan on the South Coast on Wednesday.
Rural Fire Service spokesman James Morris said crews from the Kioloa and Bawley Point brigades attended the fire at a Kioloa caravan park, near Bawley Point, in the Shoalhaven.
“The fire began in the roof of the caravan,” Mr Morris said.
“We were notified just on 5pm and crew were on the scene quickly.
“With the help of neighbouring residents, they managed to contain the fire to the single caravan, but unfortunately the man received burns to the face and hand.
“He was treated at the scene by an off-duty doctor who was a resident at the caravan park.
“An ambulance helicopter transported the man to hospital.”
A NSW Ambulance spokesman said the man, understood to be aged in his 50s, sustained superficial burns to his face and to one hand and was flown to the Royal North Shore Hospital.
A spokesman for Royal North Shore Hospital said the man was in a stable condition on Thursday morning at 10.30am.
