Shed Fire at Nurioopta- 21 August, 2020

At just after 2pm this afternoon, CFS Crews were called to a shed fire on Liebig Road, Nuriootpa.

25 CFS volunteers on 5 trucks attended the fire, supported by MFS Crews. SA Ambulance Paramedics also attended, but fortunately, there were no injuries at the scene.

Crews arrived to find the shed fully alight. They were informed by the property owner that it contained highly flammable materials, making the fire difficult to safely extinguish.

Fortunately, they were able to bring it under control, but will remain on the scene for some time, mopping up and ensuring the area is safe.

The fire is estimated to have caused around $150,000 damage and Fire Cause Investigators have been engaged to determine what started it.
