Council apologises for any inconvenience to the residents in the area who may have been awoken by the alarm.

A number of facilities across the State are experiencing fires in their greenwaste piles due to recent rain, low humidity and wind.

A large amount of mulch is on fire and an excavator has been called in to assist.
