Quick response to a holiday fire

A quick response by Wilyabrup brigade  to a fire off Caves road on Wednesday limited damage to two paddocks.  The Wilyabrup light tanker was quickly followed by the Yallingup Rural 4.4 and 1.4 and the Coastal brigade trucks.

The fire, which is thought to have started behind a holiday rental, quickly spread through two paddocks towards an adjacent house before it was brought under control.

Fish was in control with Bob, Mike, Stevo  and Tony in the 4.4 and Bruce, David and Pete in the 1.4. Chris put the heat sensor to good use in the blacking out. Within a little more than 90 minutes the brigade members were returning to their holidays.

A reminder: open outdoor fires are not permitted and that includes fire pits.
