$40,000 structure fire at Coober Pedy - 10 December 2022

Coober Pedy CFS Brigade assisted by local SES have responded to a structure fire in a small shack on Van Brugge Street. 

Today's hot weather has led to one firefighter being treated by SA Ambulance Service for heat exhaustion.

The shack was unable to be saved with an estimated loss of $40,000. Fire investigators are being called to the scene.

This is a timely reminder for all South Australians to remain aware if using machinery or cooking around the house.
