Not a good start to the week


Woke up this morning at approx 5.40am to the sound of sirens, a blaze started in a steel fabrication factory  approx 800 metres from home, the fire  spreading to a neighbouring outdoor timber furniture business.

The fire generated large amounts of smoke as it burned treated pine at the timber furniture business.
The Old Sturt Highway was closed for several hours while firefighters battle the blaze. Traffic was detoured making it a slow drive to work this morning, (this was the least of my problems)  so while I was waiting in the queue, one of the employees, stop and had a chat , still in shock asked me the following ....arsonists ***** why do they do it?
I now don't have a job................the grieve in his voice was heart breaking.
Until next time cheers marc

My DH received the first callout at 5:38 this morning then 3 more callouts asking for more crew and we're in Waikerie- so yes was one heck of a blaze - it not only the people employed directly by the businesses but also the indirect customers and the people that the employees would have spent money with..not nice ever
