  • 22 Jan 1947, 300 FIGHT GRASS FIRE AT LISBAUN, NEAR CLYDE FIRE-FIGHTER COLLAPSES
    LAST SUNDAY afternoon at about 4 o’clock a fire broke out in grass on Sand Hill at McCormick’s well-known property at Lisbaun, via Clyde. But for prompt action by members of the Clyde, Cranbourne and Officedale Rural Fire Brigades the outbreak would have swept on and done untold damage.
    As it was it burnt only 30 acres of grass before it swept up to a break which had been burnt along the road to meet it.
    Towards the end, with local residents rallying strongly to help the brigades, there must have been 300 fighting the, outbreak.
    One of the fire-fighters, Mr. Fred Heathcote, from the Beaconsfield district, collaused and was taken to the Berwick B.N. Hospital suffering from severe burns and shock.
    The fire was got under control after about 11 hours strenuous fighting.11
