FOUR Riverland CFS firefighters were among volunteers sacrificing their holidays to help battle severe bushfires on Kangaroo Island.
A COOLTONG home was lost and a local waste station severely damaged by fires across the Riverland last weekend.
CFS firefighters are still investigating the potential causes of fires in several Riverland locations on Monday night.
A RENMARK North woman has recounted the moment she saw Tim Whitrow’s plane falling to the ground, before the 49-year-old pilot suffered a severed artery and internal bruising in a crash on her property last weekend.
NEIGHBOURS say an abandoned house on Renmark’s Ninth Street is more than just an eyesore – it’s a fire hazard.
A DRY outlook for the Riverland has forced the CFS to begin the region’s 2019/20 fire danger season this Friday – two weeks early.
