Grass fire threatens homes in Sullivan Circuit

A grass fire which threatened homes on Sullivan Circuit took just 30 minutes to extinguish.

At 12.44pm on Friday, Fire and Rescue NSW were called to the hill behind homes to extinguish a fire.

Station Officer Andrew Henderson estimated the fire burnt an “acre” of land before being brought under control.

He said the wind pushed the fire towards fences of homes but the blaze was brought under control before it become a serious threat.

“The fact that the grass was slow did make it easier,” he said.

A tanker and recuse pumper were deployed to bring the fire under control.

Station Officer Henderson said the cause of the fire was unknown.

“We’re going into fire season, be aware, if you see fire, ring triple zero,” he said.

“Keep your grassed areas maintained, as well as homes, gardens, rooves and gutters cleaned and maintained.”
