Fire crews were kept busy on Tuesday, February 12, due to three separate fires in the Eurobodalla Shire.
Crews were originally called to a bushfire on Cambathin Island just after 12pm. The fire was originally thought to have started on Horse Island.
An RFS Spokesperson said crews called in a water bucket and helicopter to help contain the blaze, and stop embers from creating spot fires in residential areas.
The spokesperson said local crews would keep an eye on the blaze today, but didn’t expect any further action to be taken.
Crews were also called to a fire started by an old lightning strike in Belowra.
The RFS spokesperson said when crews arrived at the scene, they found a single tree alight in the middle of a paddock. The fire was quickly contained.
Crews were also called to a third fire in the Batemans Bay area, the result of an improperly extinguished campfire.
The RFS urged people to make sure they took care, and were thorough, when extinguishing campfires.
Meanwhile, Moruya SES responded to two separate incidents on Tuesday.
An SES spokesperson said teams were dispatched to addresses in Tuross Head and Broulee to remove fallen trees. Both jobs were completed in less than an hour.
