Fires 1903


1903 - BUSH FIRES - GUNDAGAI, Saturday. - About 3 o'clock to-day a bush fire broke out on Tarrabandra, about two miles east of Gundagai. Owing to the heat and the very long grass the fire spread fast up to 7 to-night. About 140 acrÁs of grass was burnt. So far the stock have escaped.

A bush fire is raging on the Tarrabandra, and Bengarralong stations, and about 1000 acrces of grass have already been destroyed. About 100 men are employed in the endeavour to save Messrs. Potter and Withers's "wheat crops.

Without a change of wind there will be no chance of saving any grass on the Tumut Valley, as it is exceptionally long in that Quarter. - (Ref- The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)(about) Previous issue Monday 21 December 1903).
