During November, the brigade was alerted to a number of suspicious scrub fires in and around the hills of Stokes Valley and Taita/Pomare.  This disturbing trend has now continued into December with a major scrub fire in the hills above Waterloo last night that kept the Fire Service personnel busy for several hours.

These deliberately-lit fires are putting lives and property at risk.  We would like the Stokes Valley community to be extra-vigilant over the summer and report any suspicious behaviour to the police.
