Published: 2nd February 2009

Firefighters from Warrawong, Shellharbour, Unanderra, Thirroul, Albion Park, Wollongong and the Duty and Zone Commanders responded to a grass fire in the Coomaditchy Reserve, Warrawong this afternoon. The fire involved an area of approximately 20 hectares and while several fire crews battled the fire other crews position themselves to protect neighbouring property because of the windy conditions. In just over three hours crews had extinguished the fire and carried out blacking out operations. Three hectares of bush and scrub were burnt out with no property damaged.
