An­other Blake Re­serve fire

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - OUT & ABOUT -

It took only 10 min­utes for De­niliquin NSW Fire & Res­cue fire­fight­ers to ex­tin­guish a blaze in west De­niliquin’s Blake Re­serve on Wed­nes­day evening.

Fire­fight­ers were called about 5.10pm after reports of a scrub fire near the Dec­imus and Harfleur Sts in­ter­sec­tion.

Cap­tain Martin Smith said it burned an area about 20m2.

He said fire­fight­ers could not de­ter­mine a cause of ig­ni­tion.

Nine fire­fight­ers re­sponded to the blaze, with two ap­pli­ances.

It is the sec­ond blaze in Blake Re­serve in a mat­ter of weeks, with an­other scrub fire ex­tin­guished within a ‘‘cou­ple of min­utes’’ on Oc­to­ber 21.

Its cause was also un­able to be de­ter­mined.
