NSW RFS - Batemans Bay Brigade report:
Dumped Car Set Alight Just before 8am this morning our brigade was called to reports of smoke coming from bush land in between Glenella Road and Yarabee drive in Catalina. Upon arrival, crews located a car alight with the surrounding bush land starting to burn. Our smaller appliance was able to gain access to the car fire and completely extinguish it and the surrounding bush land. We are incredibly disappointed to continuously see arson in our local community after all we have been through. Had we not had so much rainfall recently, this car fire could’ve easily spread into the nearby bush land putting properties and people at risk.
