HAVING an experienced firefighter as a neighbour can come in handy.

Damage caused by fire to a house in Beech Dr at Suffolk Park on Sunday afternoon could have been a lot worse if it wasn't for the quick actions of Byron Bay Rural Fire Brigade deputy captain, Rod Halpin, who lives next door.

Donning his brigade uniform, Mr Halpin grabbed two extinguishers from his car and with the help of several neighbours, brought the flames under control.

The rural fire brigade attended, along with police, ambulance, Fire and Rescue NSW and Country Energy.
