How Taabinga fire affected clay target club
THE Kingaroy Clay Target Club has escaped being seriously damaged by a bushfire that burned on part of the club grounds on Sunday afternoon.
A Queensland Fire and Emergency Service spokeswoman said more than 20 crews attended the fire on Aerodrome Rd, Taabinga which had a 500 metre front.
Secretary of the club Col Otto was grateful for the effort from the firefighters in containing the fire and ensuring there was no damage to buildings or electronics.
“The area we shoot from is well mowed, the only part that is not is where the shot goes,” he said.
Otto said the club works closely with rural fire crews in conducting controlled burns at the club when required.
He said this was the first notable fire that he believed had flared up from other sources.
A QFES spokeswoman said crews had not recorded a cause of the blaze but it was not being investigated.
