Fifteen fire crews fight blaze

FIFTEEN fire crews were yesterday battling a grass fire with a kilometre-wide front near Louis Bazzo Drive, Cootharaba, north-east of Pomona.

Four fire crews were first on the scene working to contain the blaze, which broke out around 12.30pm. Others were called to join the fight later in the afternoon.

Cootharaba residents near the fire were advised to consider taking precautionary measures including putting on protective clothing, drinking lots of water, moving cars to a safe location, closing windows and doors and shutting blinds, bringing pets inside, restraining them (leash, cage or secure room) and providing water, wetting down fine fuels close to buildings, removing garden furniture, doormats and other items, sealing all gaps under doors and screens, filling containers with water eg bath, sinks, buckets and wheelie bins, having ladders ready for roof space access , and having generators or petrol pumps ready.
