Balco blaze extinguished

BALCO Australia hopes to soon begin plans to move forward after a fire in its Balaklava hay processing plant caused more than $11million worth of damage on Saturday, January 28.

Emergency services were called to the Balak­lava Road premises at 2am Saturday, and worked through to today (Tues­day) to extinguish the blaze.

CEO Rob Lawson hoped to have a better understanding of the damage this afternoon, if CFS handed back the site, but predicted damage would be between $11m and $14m.
