Fire­fight­ers douse Se­cret Har­bour blaze

Southern Telegraph - - News - Gareth McKnight

About 4ha of bush­land was de­stroyed and 30 fire­fight­ers called af­ter a bush­fire in Se­cret Har­bour on Sunday.

The fire started near the in­ter- sec­tion of Ber­ryessa Park­way and Sum­merville Av­enue and was re­ported to the Depart­ment of Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices at 1.42pm.

Ber­ryessa Park­way was closed to traf­fic as there was a lot of smoke in the area, while career and volun- teer fire­fight­ers at­tended the scene to con­trol and even­tu­ally ex­tin­guish the blaze. The street was re­opened on Monday morn­ing.

At the time of the Tele­graph go­ing to print, fire­fight­ers were pa­trolling the area.
