Deni grass fire small

By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

A minor grass fire burnt 0.2 hectares on Barham Rd last Friday.

At 1.40pm, Deniliquin Fire & Rescue attended the blaze with the assistance of Deniliquin RFS.

With two fire trucks each and a water tanker provided by Edward River Council, teams were able to extinguish the fire at 2.58pm.

It’s still not known how the blaze started in the vacant paddock, however RFS Mid-Murray District Assistant Terry Campbell said the fire could have been worse due to the severely high winds on Friday.
