Un­sched­uled fires

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

PO­LICE are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a cou­ple of un­sched­uled mi­nor cane fires in Moss­man around Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day nights, which were al­legedly lit with trash. Queens­land Fire and Res­cue had to ex­tin­guish the blazes and po­lice have asked the pub­lic to re­main vig­i­lant and keep an eye out for il­le­gal fires. ‘‘If a field catches fire un­der the right wind con­di­tions, it could tear through a sub­urb and cir­cum­stances can prove fa­tal,’’ Moss­man OIC Sergeant Matthew Smith said.
