Hi all,

driving back into St Helens after a surf this morn, camp ground out at Diana's Basin was ablaze and looked like a couple of campers stuck out on the end of the point! Fire services were on the scene, but standing there watching for a good half hr, she was spreading south rather quickly !

Camp fire not put out properly this morning I would suspect !!

Despite the cost of living, have you noticed how popular it remains!

Ive pulled into camp spots where there are poo tickets everywhere and even human faeces on tracks going to the river (dirty bast^*ds) ,rubbish everywhere, so why would they bother to put a camp fire out properly...

Even if it wasnt the cause here,it's going to happen unfortunately ...

Pulled into the rest area at Reagans ford last year, saw a camp fire burning well, went over with my shovel and put it out but thought at the time if the ranger spotted me, I'd have trouble convincing him it wasn't mine. Agree Lazy or stupid Bu**ers around

Hi Evren

I saw your heading and thought probably campfire. We had a fire in the King Edward River campground in the Kimberley. A hot and windy day - the type of weather you wouldn't even drive in a paddock at home - campers made a campfire to cook lunch in the long grass without a fire break. Luckily most campers were 'at home' that day not away at Mitchell Falls like we were the following day. With relays of buckets from a rocky pool and several hours hard work, almost everyone in the camp pulled together and fought the fire, keeping it away from the parked rigs - a mammoth effort. The guilty campers were offered the use of a portable gas cooker, and had 40 litres of water dumped onto his campfire area after all was out to make sure of no further trouble.
