A CARAVAN and shed were burnt in a grass fire at Ellesmere this morning, in the third fire the region has seen in three days.

Seven crews from urban (fire brigades), Stuart River RFB and Brooklands RFB attended the blaze at 1.30am this morning, after reports of a small grass burning on Kumbia Road.

Brooklands RFB said there are a lot of unmaintained and vacant areas with long grass in the area, which are all currently vulnerable.
