Baxter Fire Brigade
Baxter Fire Brigade
Just after 1030pm last night Baxter Fire Brigade along with Somerville, Cranbourne, Tyabb and Devon Meadows were responded to assist Pearcedale Fire Brigade to explosions heard in the vicinity of Smiths Lane Pearcedale. After a short time a fire was located in hay shed in Naoki Street with the explosion due to an oxygen cylinder located inside. The fire was under control within 30 minutes with fire-fighters on scene for over 3 hours. Access to the fire was hampered early due to onlookers in vehicles. We encourage all residents to stay clear and allow easy access for emergency services. Great work by all emergency crews involved. We thank Corrine Harris and Chris Judd for the additional pics.
