FIREFIGHTERS from the Osborne Park fire station helped tackle the massive Yanchep blaze as it took hold last week.

Two trucks and five firefighters from the Collingwood Street headquarters were on the ground after the fire broke out at Yanchep National Park on December 11.

The crew worked in rotation for two days in efforts to quell the bushfire, which continued to threaten lives and homes north of Perth on Tuesday.
