$90,000 Scrub Fire at Buckland Park - 28 October 2023

At approximately 12.30 this afternoon, CFS Crews responded to scrub fire in and around greenhouses at Buckland Park in Adelaide's northern outskirts. 10 fire trucks have attended, crewed with 40 firefighters who contained the fire within 90 minutes and remain on the scene to mop up and ensure all hot spots are out. The fire is believed to have been ignited by angle grinder sparks, and while approximately $90,000 in greenhouse damages have been done, the fantastic response of our volunteers has seen a significant save of assets which were under immediate threat in the area. 2023-10-28 Rob Montgomery
