Homes saved from fire

The Advertiser - - NEWS -

PO­LICE be­lieve a fire which came within me­tres of houses yes­ter­day was de­lib­er­ately lit.

Nu­mer­ous crews pro­tected houses on Mag­a­zine Drive from the fire in a grassy re­serve yes­ter­day. Flames could be seen leap­ing from the scrub as MFS fought to con­tain the fire which de­stroyed large swathes of the grass­land.

Fire­fight­ers bat­tled steep, rugged ter­rain just to reach the blaze. MFS com­man­der Robert Fraser said the fire started at 4pm on the north side of Yatala prison. Crime Scene in­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve it was started in the dry creek bed.
