Wally's Piggery fire

A fire burnt part of a building at Wally's Piggery near Murrumbateman yesterday afternoon.

Peter Dyce from the Rural Fire Service said the fire started when a power line fell onto the roof of one of the buildings around 3.30pm.

He said there was a lot of smoke but the fire didn't cause a lot of damage.

“They very quickly had it under control,” Superintendent Dyce said, as three units took just 30 minutes to put the fire out.

“It could've been serious if somebody had gone and touched the shed.”

However, Essential Energy was on the scene quickly to turn the power off.

Several other fires started around the area today. More information on the Wargeila Road fire rolling coverage here.
