Hay Shed Fire in Brimbargo, near Keith- 2 January

At 3:45 this afternoon, the CFS were called to a fire at Brimbargo South Road, Brimbago, near Keith in the State’s South East.

12 CFS personnel on 3 trucks responded to the fire, as well as a number of Farm Fire Units from the local community.

Crews arrived to find a fire in a hay shed which spread, destroying the shed, as well as around 100 bales, 2 tractors, a truck, and a seeder.

 The losses are around $400 000.

The fire also created a small grass fire which has been extinguished, however locals may notice an increase in smoke in the area, due to the smouldering hay stacks.
