A fire has broken out at the local supermarket in Walgett.

Emergency services were called to the IGA on Fox Street in Walgett after 8.30 this morning.

Three ambulance crews attended the scene.

No patients have required treatment at this stage.

Fire and Rescue are managing the scene.

It's the second time the building has been damaged by fire after it was destroyed in 2013.


The Department of Education says the primary school campus, Walgett Community College, has not been evacuated, despite claims in the community.

The department says students have either been taken home by their parents or moved to a safer area of the school.
