Tenindewa Fire Fighting

December 14th 1910

Geraldton Express

A bush fire visited Tenindewa on Sunday. Mr. Meadowcroft lost some grass, but his crop was saved. The fire approached within 35 yards [30 metres] of Mr. Norman Fry’s crop, but damage was prevented by the activity of the brigade of volunteer fire-fighters which rapidly appeared on the scene. Beyond the burning of a small amount of fencing no great loss was sustained. Mr. Meadowcroft, who suffered verily last season from a fire is to be congratulated on his escape on this occasion.

Note: Norman Fry farmed on the west side of Menang Road and Arnold Meadowcroft on the east side of Menang Road
