A fire fighter has died while attending a car fire in Bendethra on Sunday afternoon.
The NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) male volunteer attended the vehicle fire at the remote Bendethra camping area in the Deua National Park on November 27 when he suffered a suspected heart attack.
Due to the remote location, fellow volunteers provided initial medical assistance including the use of an Automated External Defibrillator.
The man was treated by ambulance officers, however he died.
NSW RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said the Service's condolences are with the man’s family and friends, fellow crew and brigade members.
“We are offering every assistance possible to the volunteer’s family and fellow members," Commissioner Fitzsimmons said.
“We will continue to offer whatever help is required."
No further details are available at this stage while NSW RFS personnel work with service members and the man’s family.
The NSW RFS confirmed the death on Monday morning.
