FIREFIGHTERS have urged residents to be vigilant after another grass fire in Banora Point this week.
Tweed Heads Fire and Rescue senior firefighter Greg Mackay said crews were called to parkland on the western side of Greenway Dr, close to a school and homes, about 11pm on Monday.
He said two fire crews – one from Banora Point and one from Tweed Heads – attended and spent about half an hour at the scene.
Mr Mackay said given the dry, windy conditions, it was fortunate the fire was not more serious. He urged all residents to be vigilant, slamming the incident as “highly irresponsible”.
The fire was the latest in a string of suspicious blazes in the Banora Point and Tweed Heads areas in recent weeks, with crews having been called repeatedly to bushland near Fraser Dr and parts of the Pacific Mwy nearby.
Mr Mackay said police attended the scene.
