Bush fire deemed non-suspicious

Acting Deputy Fire Chief Randy Rankin says yesterday’s (May19) bush fire in Savannah had no evidence of suspicious activity, but the cause of the fire is unknown.

Mr. Rankin said areas close to the Agricultural grounds had fires that were extinguished by a team of firefighters who prevented the blaze from affecting nearby communities and added the actual site of the blaze was difficult to reach on land as it was deep into the bushes.

Mr. Rankin said no one was hurt in the blaze and expressed his thanks for the support given by police officers in fighting the blaze particularly the aerial support they provided.

“We appreciate them more than we can say in words. It was very helpful for us to have that aerial view that we could actually plan our course of action,” Mr. Rankin said as he explained the role of the police helicopter in assisting his team of firefighters.
