Mintaro: hayshed fire 4 January, 2018

Just before 1:30 this afternoon, CFS crews were called to a hayshed fire on private property at Mintaro.

31 CFS firefighters from 7 appliances are monitoring the fire and working to contain the fire to the hayshed. 2,000 large square hay bales have been destroyed, along with a 20 cubic metre shed.

Crews are currently backburning around the hay shed to reduce available fuels, and will continue to monitor the situation until the fire is declared safe.
