Vehicle, paddock burn at Nanneella

December 06, 2017

EIGHT CFA appliances are fighting a grassfire which has burnt out about 5 acres of crop and a ute.

Units from Echuca, Echuca Village, Tongala and Rochester were unable to save a farm vehicle, caught in the fast-moving fire and it has been destroyed.

At this stage it is not believed anyone has been injured in the fire.

It happened in paddocks bordering the Echuca-Nanneella Rd about 1km south of McKenzie Rd.

Because the vehicle has been burning the fire is casting a large pall of black smoke and CFA is expected to issue a smoke advisory shortly to let people know there is no further danger despite the smoke.

More to come.
