Ulllna. GRASS KIRE. On Sunday evening last a fire broke oul in one of Mr Chris Fawcett's pad docks, about two miles from Ullma. The lightning is believed to be the cause of the outbreak. About 60 of grass were burnt, and the fire was extinguished before getting into the loog grass in Mr A. L. Nase's pad docks. If it had reached there it may have caused some damage for the wind would have carried it towards some houses, but the rain which fell may have settled it before it could have gone far.
