Three crews of firefighters battle grass fires at the Old Park off Tennyson Avenue in Canterbury

16 May 2014

Three crews of firefighters stopped a grass fire from spreading across scrubland in Canterbury last night.
 
They were called to the Old Park off Tennyson Avenue shortly before 9.30pm and using a fire fogging unit from an all-terrain vehicle, tackled two separate blazes, each around 60 sq metres.

The land is owned by the Ministry of Defence and is the site of frequent grass fires in dry weather, some started deliberately.
 
The cause last night is unknown but no one was injured and no property damaged. Firefighters left the scene at about 10.15pm.
