A Department of Fire and Emergency Services spokeswoman said 12 appliances from volunteer and career crews as well as volunteer bush fire brigades were called to the fire off Brazier Road, although three were stood down en route.

A passerby reported the scrub fire about 10pm on March 5, and firefighters confirmed by 10.30pm that no properties near the foreshore dunes were under threat.

“At 11pm, the fire was under control and the firefighters were blacking out,” the spokeswoman said.

She said the fire did not damage any properties, and the cause was unknown.
