Son dies in ferocious house blaze after rescuing his mother

Tragic scenes in Sydney’s Inner West this morning, where a man was killed in a raging house fire just moments after rescuing his mother.

Emergency crews rushed to the Henley Marine Drive property in Rodd Point around 2.30am, where they found the house engulfed in flames.

An elderly woman and her adult son managed to escape the blaze, however it appears the son went back inside the home to fight the fire and suffered fatal injuries.


It’s understood the fire may have started in a bedroom, however it’s not yet been determined what sparked the blaze.

A crime scene has been established and investigations are ongoing.
