PHOTO: Water bomber fights fire in CBS

A forest fire started yesterday during the afternoon near Red Bridge Road, in Kelligrews, only a few hundred metres from the Conception Bay highway. Hundreds of people lined the highway to watch four firefighters and the water bomber fight the fire, as smoke drifted through Kelligrews and Manuels. It is estimated that 500 – 1,000 square meters burned; investigators are on the scene today to determine the fire’s cause.
