Did someone say a quiet fire season? The brigade responded to two fires in 24 hours this week. The 4.4, with a crew of five, went to the Kangaroo Gully fire, outside Bridgetown, early Tuesday and did a 12 hour shift, mainly blacking out. A lot of the work involved steep hills alongside pine plantations.
Roughly six hours later, at 1:45 Wednesday morning, the brigade was called out to a fire a lot closer to home, Kangaroo Parade. The 4.4 and 1.4 spent over two hours mainly blacking out and putting out spot fires. Andy J, Alan Y and Matty did double shifts, all day at Bridgetown and overnight in Yals.
Dunsborough and Yallingup Coastal brigades both assisted at the Kangaroo Parade fire.
