Paramedics assessed the girl for heat and stress-related symptoms.

Fire and Rescue NSW Acting Superintendent Tim Hassiotis warned this incident is a reminder not to leave children or pets alone in cars.

"Even on a mild day, temperatures inside vehicles can reach dangerous, life-threatening levels very quickly," he said.
