Man badly burnt in NSW unit fire where drug lab was found

A man has been rushed to hospital in a critical condition after being badly burnt in a fire at a NSW unit where drug manufacturing equipment was allegedly found.

Emergency services were called to the ground floor of a Miller unit around 2.00pm on Monday after reports of a fire.

When they arrived they found a 35-year-old man suffering from serious burns lying on the front lawn outside the unit block.


He was being helped by a fellow resident of the building before being treated by paramedics and rushed to Concord hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

Firefighters managed to extinguish the blaze.

Police say the burnt flat was examined and the State Crime Command’s Chemical Operations Team allegedly discovered various items which could be used to make prohibited drugs.

The cause of the fire was still being investigated.
