CFS responds to Naracoorte fire

The CFS is currently working to contain a grass fire on the outskirts of Naracoorte.

The fire at the southern end of Gordon St on Naracoorte’s outskirts was reported at about 11.20am this morning.

Numerous CFS appliances and fire fighters from the Naracoorte group responded immediately. By noon, they were still actively working on the site but the official CFS rating was “contained”.

The fire is believed to have started in a back yard and spread to a neighbouring paddock where CFS personnel were able to contain it.

The property owner said he believed the fire started via spontaneous combustion from a small pile of garden material. The damage was believed to have been restricted to grass and some vegetation and there were no reported injuries.
