Shed on fire

EMERGENCY services were called to a backyard blaze on Cottell St, North Bundaberg about 9pm on Saturday night.

Paramedics were on standby to support firefighters, who managed to bring the fire under control.

It is believed a wooden paling fence caught alight and a shed was also affected.

Two crews were still on the scene at 10.45pm by which time the blaze was out. A witness said there was "a hole in the fence you could drive through” at the back of the brick house.
