Andy and Carlo spent Thursday night fighting a fire southeast of Donnybrook. The pair took the Light Tanker at eight pm and returned by nine Friday morning, just in time for Andy to return to work at the Post Office.
They were operating southeast of Donnybrook, off Thomson Brook Road. They spent the night blacking out and extinguishing spot fires, working in very hilly terrain, in bush and pine plantations.
By mid Friday morning the fire was contained but not under control.
