It Was An Early Start For Local Firies

A stolen car was involved...

12 May 2017

Shortly after midnight fire crews for the call to Saunders Beach Road to put out a grass fire. 

The fire was spread from a car which had been torched. 

Authorities believe the car involved had actually been stolen from Jensen, and was identified as a Hyundai Getz. 

It was no easy task to put out the fire though, with the local heroes leaving the scene around 4am.
