The Riverine Herald - - NEWS -

TWO small fires out­side Moama yes­ter­day (pic­tured right) were be­lieved to have been caused by a ve­hi­cle.

Three Moama Fire Brigade tankers and one from Thyra were called to the road­side grass fires on Thyra Rd at 12.03pm.

Mid-Mur­ray In­spec­tor Doug Adam­son said the fires were less than a hectare and didn’t cause any ma­jor dam­age or risk to prop­erty.

‘‘They ap­pear to have been started by a ve­hi­cle; ei­ther a crook wheel bear­ing or a flat tyre,’’ he said. Fire­fight­ers took less than an hour to ex­tin­guish the fire.
