Another Blake Reserve fire

November 03, 2017

It took only 10 minutes for Deniliquin NSW Fire & Rescue firefighters to extinguish a blaze in west Deniliquin’s Blake Reserve on Wednesday evening.

Firefighters were called about 5.10pm after reports of a scrub fire near the Decimus and Harfleur Sts intersection.

Captain Martin Smith said it burned an area about 20m2.

He said firefighters could not determine a cause of ignition.

Nine firefighters responded to the blaze, with two appliances.

It is the second blaze in Blake Reserve in a matter of weeks, with another scrub fire extinguished within a ‘‘couple of minutes’’ on October 21.

Its cause was also unable to be determined.
