Hill Fire at Achnaha

Many thanks to Stewart Pote for pictures of this afternoon's hill fire near Achnaha.

The area affected was to the north of the Wishing Rock and to the east of Achnaha Township.

At this time of year, with dead bracken and heather drying out quickly in the sunshine, it only takes a few days for the hills to become tinder-dry.

Four fire appliances were on scene....

....with firemen working well into the evening to put out the blaze.
