Grassfire on Denman Road serves as warning to locals


Local fire crews are reminding locals that even though it's cold, it doesn't mean a fire can't start.

Yesterday afternoon NSW Rural Fire Service crews from Edinglassie and Fire and Rescue NSW Station 392 from Muswellbrook were called to a grassfire on Denman Road.

Fire crews were able to bring the blaze under control containing it to less than a hectare in size.

Firies say that even though it's the middle of winter, the fire burnt well through dry grassland.

It's a reminder too to contact your local fire authority for advice before you do any pile or rubbish burns.
