Another burn off keeps brigade busy

The brigade took advantage of break in the winter weather to carry out a burn off in Sheaoak Drive Thursday.

Matty, Fish, Chris, Andy, Douglas, Steveo, Joe And Mick took part. Close to five hectares were burnt.

With a lot of properties wanting to carry out burns and the forecast of a dry spring, the brigade is trying to get in as many burns as possible between the rains.

Fires still a threat in June

The community was reminded last weekend that bush fires are still a threat, even though it is June.

Both Yallingup Rural trucks were called out early Sunday to put out a fire that originated in a private burnoff the previous day. FCOs Fish and Hunty, along with Andy, Michael B, Steveo and Todd spent  their Sunday morning mopping up.

Brigade Captain Matty points out that even though it is June and the fire season is officially over we need to be very careful burning off until the winter rains finally arrive.
