Lightning is thought to have started two fires in the region yesterday.RUTH CLAYTON November 28, 2012 4:34am
A lightning strike on Monday night is thought to be the cause of a fire off Stewarts Bridge Rd yesterday afternoon.
Five CFA tankers were called out to the scene at 3.07pm, after a south-easterly wind blew the fire towards the Murray River.
Deakin Fire Brigade Group deputy group officer Brian Quinn said the fire burned through one hectare of bush.
No-one was injured and no property was destroyed in the fire.
Firefighters also put out a tree fire at Horfield, south east of Cohuna, yesterday afternoon.
The fire started after a lightning strike hit the tree on a Turnours Rd property.
Firefighters form Cohuna and Leitchville fire brigades were called to the fire about 2pm and took about 20 minutes to extinguish it.
Cohuna brigade captain Bruce Embleton said it was a good save as the fire could have burnt much more than just the tree and the small patch of grass around it that it did burn.
‘‘There was concern about strong wind and there was dry grass not far away,’’ Mr Embleton said.
