Busted bearing causes fire

March 28, 2018

The grass fire on the Riverina Highway.

Less than a hectare of grass land was destroyed by fire on Thursday.

About 11am, Rural Fire Service teams from Berrigan, Finley and Tocumwal were called to the Riverina Hwy near Leniston Rd.

According to Federation Zone Captain Greyd’n Davis the fire was cause by a spark from a broken wheel bearing on a trailer.


Tocumwal Fire and Rescue responded to a rubbish fire on March 17 in Finley St.

It only took a matter of seconds to extinguish the fire which is being treated as suspicious.

Captain Ian Desailly said ‘‘no one is to light any fires both in or out of town without a permit’’.
