Reduction burn left unmanned

By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

Deniliquin Fire and Rescue NSW was called to a fire behind the Deniliquin Golf Course in Harfleur St on Wednesday afternoon.

Someone was burning logs as a part of a hazard reduction, but because they were not in attendance firefighters had to put it out.

When conducting a burn, it is important to notify neighbours and your nearest fire station of your intention to burn, install fire breaks around the area, have working firefighting equipment, an adequate water supply and have a responsible person on site at all times.

If you see a fire unattended, call Triple Zero (000).
