Rubbish Dump Fire in Clare

fire 13

Just after 2pm yesterday CFS advised that crews were called to the surrounding areas of the Clare Valley for reports of a fire.

Crews responded to a rubbish dump fire involving tyres at a private residence, approximately 5 kilometres north of the Clare township in the Stanley Flat area adjacent to Horrocks Highway.

The incident caused a considerable amount of dark acrid smoke to drift towards Clare and the surrounding areas.

It is not known how much damage has been caused to the property.
