CORRESPONDENCE. MOUNT BRYAN EAST, January 20. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 30 January 1880

CORRESPONDENCE. (From our own Correspondents.) MOUNT BRYAN EAST, January 20. The weather has been very warm this last fortnight especially last Tuesday which was a regular scorcher. The reaping is nearly all finished and the crops are turning out first class. A fire broke out on Mr. John Dunstan's farm on Thursday last and burned about an acre of grass and stubble and caught a heap of wheat containing about sixty bags of wheat before it could be put out. Mr. Dunstan sons and men were reaping at the time about 150 yards off when it started. They have no idea how it originated. They left the reaper standing and went on beating the fire back from the heap and stopped it from getting into the standing crop. When they finished they turned round and saw the heap on fire. They thyn got picks and shovels and with the assistance of Mr. G. Harry covered the heap of wheat with earth. Watch was kept over it for 5 or 6 hours and where they saw the least sign of smoke they threw more earth on. By...
