Back to Wildwood

The brigade spent its Saturday sundowner at another Wildwood vineyard, three days after its previous visit to the area.

Thanks to the quick turnout of Coastal and our Light Tankers, the fire was contained to a small area of light bush. It is thought the fire was a reignited burn from a few days ago, possibly due to a log burning underground.

Fish was in control and Emma, Steveo and Mark P were driving the LTs. Andy, Dave T, Mike B, Todd and Tony turned up to help out. Chris put the thermal camera to good use, tracking underground heat sources.

Along with the Coastal trucks, the 12.2 tanker turned up to offer support. The incident was over in about 45 minutes, giving the brigade enough time to enjoy the sunset.

And just a reminder that everyone needs a permit to burn from now on and burns can stay hot for days underground.
