$250,000 tractor fire - 10 October 2023

14 CFS volunteer firefighters on 3 trucks, supported by multiple Farm Fire Units, were called to a property at the intersection of Clinton Rd and Bridgman Road in Maitland around 3:30pm this afternoon, where they found a tractor engulfed in flames.

The volunteer firefighters were unable to save the tractor, however, the diligent work by crews stopped the fire from spreading to the surrounding crop.

The total damage bill of the destroyed tractor is estimated to be $250,000. The cause is undetermined with the tractor too badly burnt to investigate.

Firefighters are being supported by SA Police and local Farm Fire Units.
