Fire

Fire engines and two helicopters were called to fight a scrub fire near Butchers Dam, a few kilometres from Alexandra, today:

Fortunately there wasn’t much wind and the dam was near by to supply water:

Locals say it is DOC land and they had been concerned about the fire danger from uncontrolled growth on it.
