Deniliquin NSW Fire and Rescue had a busy week of call-outs this week, but thankfully no fires threatened Deniliquin.
Deputy captain Martin Smith said several crews were sent to other towns.
‘‘Even though we did send firefighters away we made certain Deniliquin was protected at all times,’’ he said.
On Tuesday four local firefighters were sent to assist the Tarcutta fire in Wagga.
Mr Smith said the firefighters didn’t battle fire, but were on hand as ‘‘asset protection’’.
The fire at Tarcutta is now contained after burning about 1,600 hectares. Firefighters returned home Wednesday morning.
A crew was also sent to the Jerilderie fire on ‘‘stand-by’’ on Tuesday morning and returned that afternoon.
Two Deni Fire and Rescue appliances rushed to the boat ramp in Harfleur St, Deniliquin on Tuesday night after reports of a camp fire.
Arriving about 10pm, Mr Smith said there was ‘‘no sign’’ of a camp fire. Tuesday was a day of total fire ban.
Deni Fire and Rescue was also called to Sloane St, Deniliquin at 11pm Tuesday night.
While it was a false alarm, Mr Smith said it was a ‘‘good intent call’’.
‘‘The person had smelt smoke and called us with the fear there could be a fire,’’ he said.
Direct southerly winds caused smoke to come from a grass fire in Moama, Mr Smith said.
