Newstead Brigade was able to assist a local landowner who was conducting a stubble burn. It was a nice sunny and mild day with very little breeze to speak of, but as you will see in the video, the fire created its own draft and created some interesting fire behavior.

On Thursday The 13/4/2017 the Newstead Brigade responded to a MVA possible persons trapped on the Newstead Creswick Road. On arrival the single occupant of the Vehicle had managed to clime out of the Vehicle he was treated on scene and was transferred to the Ballarat Hospital. This is a timely reminder to take care while on the roads as this has been our second MVA response in a week on the same stretch of road.
