Yesterday afternoon driving home I noticed smoke rising from somewhere in West Belconnen. Due to the nature of smoke, I couldn’t pinpoint where it was coming from, but today the ABC tells me it was caused by a fire at a wrecker’s near Holt.
A number of houses were evacuated because of the fire, which took firefighters two hours to get under control. I guess it’s good some lessons have been learnt and they’re now getting people out sooner rather than later but it sure must have ruined some people’s lovely Saturday afternoon.
The cause of the fire is as yet unknown.
