CHECKED BY RAIN. TUMUT. Wednesday. - Another bushfire broke out at Tumut Plains on Mr. A. Sturt's property. Forest Camp, and a fresh outbreak occurred at Grahamstown, near Adelong, on Mr. C. F. Hayes' property. Light showers of rain, however, considerably checked the spread, and cooled the atmosphere. - (Red- The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)(about) Previous issue Thursday 11 February 1926). It is interseting to notice the property name "Forest Camp" mentioned in this fire notification. Maybe this is the property that Thomas first settled on when he arrived in the Tumut area?
