Too close for comfort

Quick acting responders worked together to save the home of the Stockman family at Flagstaff Hill, Burra on Saturday, when a grass fire threatened to destroy all in its path.

Home at the time with their four children, Jodie Stockman said she just happened to see the fire which is believed to have started near the chook yard at the rear of the house.

“The kids and I were home. It was just lucky that I saw it when I did, otherwise it could have been a lot bigger,”

“The guys were all at the pub. My phone call to Pete cleared the bar apparently.
