Update 11 – Fire at West Belconnen

Firefighters have extinguished the fire in a large pile of pallets within the industrial estate at Parkwood in West Belconnen.

The fire started on Friday afternoon and quickly spread to nearby grassland before being put out with the help of water bombing helicopters based in the ACT for the bushfire season.

ACT Fire & Rescue maintained a presence at the site on Parkwood Road over the weekend until the pallet pile fire was fully extinguished.

Fire crews returned earlier this morning to wet down any hot spots and will continue to return periodically for the next few days to ensure no flare up occur.
