Crews called back to property after morning mower fire

FIRE crews were called back to the property on Torbanlea Pialba Rd on Tuesday night after reports of a vegetation fire following a ride on mower blaze earlier in the day.  

Two crews from the Takura Rural Fire Brigade and a crew from Torquay Fire Station in Hervey Bay were called to the Walligan property just after midnight. 

It's believed the fire reignited after a mower and nearby scrub went up in flames around 8am Tuesday. 

The midnight scrub fire was put out around 12.30am Wednesday.
