On Tuesday the 21st of January 2014 crew from Lower Inman and Hindmarsh Valley CFS Brigades responded to a fire at Crossman Road, near Coote Road, Lower Inman Valley.  The fire which burnt 2.3 hectares of grass and trees is reported to have started by a tractor driven slasher.

Two CFS quick response vehicles (QRVs) were able to quickly halt the forward movement of the head of the fire, backed up by four heavy fire appliances and a bulk water carrier.  Twenty five CFS volunteers took several hours to black out the fire, which included dealing with burning hollow trees and fencing.
