I wonder who turned up first, the ACT or NSW firies? Oaks Estate is in the ACT but the local Queanbeyan Fire Station is much closer than the nearest Canberra one in Fyshwick.Would be interesting to know if common sense trumped bureaucratic procedure.

Neither, word has it that the first to the scene were journalists
