Maggea Tractor fire - 5 March 2018
Monday, March 5 at 4.30pm:
Just before 3pm this afternoon, three CFS crews were called to a suspected tractor fire in a paddock at Maggea, near Wunkar in the Riverland.
On arrival crews found a large articulated tractor alight with the tyres completely destroyed.
The cause is thought to be a leak in the hydraulic or fuel line.
The fire is still burning, being fuelled by the hydraulic line and oil tank.
The damage bill is estimated at $75,000.
Smoke is likely to be in the area for some time.2018-03-05 Ali Martin
