$300,000 structure fire at Port Macdonnell - 15 March 2023

At 6:31am this morning CFS crews were alerted to a structure fire on Eight Mile Creek Road, Port Macdonnell.

Three CFS fire trucks, and three CFS Bulk Water Carriers, arrived to find a shed approximately 10m by 20m fully alight, with an attached two car carport.

Crews were unable to approach the fire due to the extreme heat, therefore used defensive attack methods to stop the spread and contain the fire. The shed contained 3 vehicles, a trailer and boat, and were unfortunately severely damaged.

Damage value is estimated at $300,000 to $350,000.

Fire Cause Investigators will be attending the scene later today.
