Two Fires in One Day

On 30 December 2013 the Gungahlin brigade attended a grass fire on the ACT/NSW border near the Gunaghalin Eucalypts and worked with crews from NSW RFS. In the evening units from Guises Creek, Jerra, Southern, Rivers, Molonglo and Tidbinbilla worked with Fire and Rescue at a fire on Oxley Hill. 

Media coverage of the fires can be found from the ABC, the Canberra Times and the RiotACT with a great aerial view of the burnt area the next day here

Thanks to Emma Van Der Moezel and Anthony Beck from Gungahlin for the photos. More photos will be added to the blog as they come through.
