Fire burned more than 40ha of private property in Deniliquin on Saturday afternoon, and came close to destroying a Lloyds Lane home.

The fire destroyed the family’s workshop before turning toward the house.

The fire started in a paddock off Lloyds lane just before 2pm and firefighters had to return to the fire that night when strong winds re-sparked ‘hot spots’.

More, including the family’s first hand account, in tomorrow’s Pastoral Times.
