Firey's and Endeavour Energy crews isolated the power and used carbon dioxide extinguishers to stop the blaze spreading from the electrical kiosk...

The outbreak has led to a heads-up from the Gerringong RFS about hydrants near us.

They say that while water wasn't used to put this fire out.. if it was needed, it would have been difficult to access because nearby hydrants had been neglected and overgrown by grass.

They're urging us to ensure hydrants near us are kept ready for immediate use.
