Lightning sparks blaze

ABOUT 400 hectares burned after lightning struck east of Min­laton on Saturday, December 1.

CFS crews from throughout the peninsula and four water bombers — two from Hoyleton and two from Port Lincoln — fought the fire, working through the night.

The blaze began just before 2.30pm when wind gusts at the Minlaton Airport measured 61km/h; at 12.30pm it reached 72km/h.
