Property at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy is believed to have been destroyed in a blaze in the McCauley’s area this week. But since then, there have been more fires in the area, with what’s thought to be several small fires causing concern last night, Thursday September 7.
Last night’s fire again saw crews in attendance in what has become a regular occurrence in the area- with several blazes over the last few weeks. The blazes are thought to have been deliberately lit.
Until now, no property had been damaged and many of the fires have been carefully managed by fire crews and used as hazard reduction burns.
However, there is still concern over the origin of the fires. They are being treated as suspicious and investigations are underway.
