Christmas Week Fire

rowsAll three brigade trucks were in action Monday, December 23 fighting a grass fire off Puzey Road.

The fire was in a vineyard and the narrow rows made the job more difficult, requiring the use of the front spray bar and static hoses from the work platform.

The brigade was assisted by a Light Tanker from Willyabrub and two fire fighting trailers provided by local contractors/farmers. Despite the 25 kph winds, the fire was prevented from reaching the adjoining bushland. The brigade spent about two hours at the fire scene.

With the busy holiday season approaching the brigade is going to a roster system over Christmas and New Year’s to ensure adequate resources to protect the community.blackrows
