A man has been charged with assaulting police officers who were attempting to prevent a homeowner from re-entering a burning house in Sydney. The incident occurred on Shepherd Street in St Marys, western Sydney, where police and emergency crews responded to a fire at a single-storey weatherboard home.

Two residents, a 66-year-old man and his 40-year-old daughter, managed to escape the blaze uninjured. However, tensions escalated when a 38-year-old man allegedly assaulted officers as they tried to stop the homeowner from going back inside the burning structure.

The accused was charged with assaulting police officers and hindering them in the performance of their duties. He appeared in Parramatta Bail Court, where he was denied bail. The case underscores the dangers faced by both emergency responders and residents during fire emergencies.
