Firefighters called in to help battle blaze

A GRASS fire on the northern side of the Condamine River at Murray's Bridge was put out by 5pm yesterday.

The fire first started from a lightning strike on Saturday night on a property on Kearney Rd and was brought under control, but it reignited at 2.30pm yesterday.

Unfortunately for the firefighters, a heavy shower near the Warwick Saleyards just after 3pm did not extend to the area of the fire.

Two rural fire brigade units were quickly on the scene and two more were called to help fight the fire at 4pm.

There was no immediate danger to structures in the area.

The fire was visible from Murray's Bridge Hall and extended for an area of more than 200 metres on the northern side of the Condamine River at 3pm yesterday.

The fire was under control just after 5pm and left with the owner.
