Fire between the showers

Fish blacking out

The brigade was called out to extinguish an escaped private burn Wednesday .  Although there had been showers early in the day, the fire quickly spread into adjacent bush, thick with leaf litter.

Eli from Dunsborough VFRS was first on the scene, quickly joined by Titch from Yallingup Coastal.   Fortunately Eli had three fire extinguishers in his car and was able to knock down the fire while a local bobcat driver cut a fire break.

Tony turned up a few minutes later, followed by FCO Fish and a few minutes later, Matty in the Light Tanker and John in the 4.4.  Within an hour the fire was blacked out.
