Early start to the fire season


The season got off to an early start Wednesday with a fire near Hayes Road.

HayesLTThe fire was reported at 12:47 pm. Duncan and Mark P responded in the Light Tanker and Alan, Andy, Matty And Ross were in 4.4 with FCOs Fish and David in attendance. The brigade was joined by units from Dunsborough, Kolorup and Vasse.

The wind made the fire difficult to fight and it took two hours to extinguish and black out.

The day before the brigade was busy doing its own burn-off on a private property.

The brigade is now entering its busiest months of the year before the start of the restricted burning period.
