Several rows of hay bales were lost in a grass fire which occurred at Inman Valley on the morning of 11th January 2013.
The fire was believed to have started from a ride on lawn mower operating nearby.

CFS appliances from both the Southern Fleurieu and Victor Harbor CFS Groups responded, quickly bring the grass fire under control.

The fire burnt an area of several hectares, burning around native trees and into a blue gum plantation. Damage was generally restricted to the hay and a section of fence located alongside the hay bales.

Before the large round bales could be extinguished by the CFS a front end loader was required to spread the burning hay out.

Brigades involved: Inman Valley, Lower Inman Valley, Yankalilla, Second Valley and Hay Flat and bulk water carries from both Groups.
