Dunsborough Light Tanker provided assistance Saturday, stopping a burn-off escaping into bush full of grass trees. The fire was on Vintners Drive. It developed mid-afternoon when the wind picked up and flames spread from a burning pile into a paddock and adjacent grass trees. Vintners Drive is on the border of the Dunsborough district and their Light Tanker crew quickly got the fire under control.
The brigade’s 4.4 soon arrived with Andy, Bruce, Matty and Mike joining David, Chris and Tony S and the Dunsborough 3.4 in blacking out.
After Friday’s almost steady rain the brigade had been hoping for a day off Saturday. Sunday is the last day of burning without a permit and residents are urged to be cautious.
