Homes saved from fire
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.
