Shed fire near Murray Bridge 2 May 2018

Just after 2am this morning CFS and MFS crews were called to a shed fire on Eucalypt Road in Northern Heights, just out of Murray Bridge. The fire was in a besser brick shed, being used as a residence.

The five CFS and two MFS crews worked to stop the fire spreading to other properties but were unable to stop the fire destroying the shed.

The damage bill is estimated at between $40,000 and $50,000.

The owner identified the cause of the fire being that they tripped over a portable heater, which then caught fire. He has been taken to hospital with minor injuries.
