Trucks Battle Scrub Fire On Olivers Hill

Mt Eliza Fire Brigade was called to support Frankston Fire Brigade today (25th January 2017) for a tree and scrub fire on the cliff edge of Olivers Hill.

It was a busy few hours for all brigades in the local area.

At about midday Mt Eliza Fire Brigade and Frankston Fire Brigade responded to a tree and scrub fire on the cliff edge of Olivers Hill. Langwarrin Fire Brigade, Baxter Fire Brigade and air support (helicopters) also attended because of difficulties with access and to protect nearby houses and assets. A total of nine fire trucks attended.

Shortly after this fire was contained, crews from Mount Eliza responded to a fire underneath a house and were supported by Mornington Fire Brigade and Moorooduc Fire Brigade.

The area temperature peaked at 21.6 degrees today.

These incidents prove that it doesn’t need to 40 degrees with a strong wind for a grass fire to spread rapidly and threaten your home. It is a timely reminder ask yourself, ARE YOU FIRE READY?
