The 1.4 was used to put out a car fire in Blackbutt Close, Wednesday. A quick thinking dozer driver dumped a bucket of sand on the car and temporarily put out the initial fire. However once the 1.4 arrived along with Adam, David, Douglas, Emma, Kevin and Noel, and the car was dug out, it was clear it was still burning. It took all the truck’s thousand litres and foam to eventually put it out.
Meanwhile the brigade’s 12.2 tanker has arrived in the Esperance region with Alan and Stevo and was already at work Thursday morning just South of Salmon Gums .
