Maldon News 12 Feb 1918
DISASTROUS BUSH FIRE,
BARINGHUP'S RESIDENTS SUFFER.
SHEEP, FENCING AND GRASS BURNT.
A most disastrous bush fire occurred at Baringhup on Monday. From the particulars to hand, it is believed that the outbreak was caused by sparks flying from a traction engine, which was proceeding from Avoca towards Maldon on the Baringhup West road, which ignited the grass alongside the road. As the flames spread with alarming rapidity to the adjoining property of Mr J. Lillie, of Linwood Grange, the whistle of the engine was blown for assistance, which was soon forthcoming, but despite the most strenuous efforts of the fire-beaters it could not be put out until serious damage had resulted.
The paddocks of Mr D. Mikkelsen were soon ablaze, and here fully 200 sheep were burnt and fencing destroyed, besides hundreds of acres of grass, and his loss must have amounted to close on £500.
Messrs A. Duff and Sharp & Taylor's paddocks also suffered to a large extent, and the full amount of the damage cannot yet be estimated, as the fire continued on its course towards Moolort.
To-day it was stated that the fire had started afresh and was threatening other properties In the vicinity, and it is to be hoped that its progress will be stayed before much more damage is done.
A number of local residents visited the locality yesterday and to-day, and the outbreak is considered one of the worst ever experienced in the district.
