Woman assaults police – Bangalow

Police say that a woman resisted arrest and assaulted two officers yesterday in Bangalow.

Police are investigating the cause of a fire that completely destroyed a house at Upper Main Arm yesterday afternoon.

The blaze had already destroyed much of the four-bedroom home when emergency service crews arrived on the scene around 1pm yesterday.

No-one was injured in the blaze; the house was empty at the time of the fire.

Bushfire

Meanwhile a bushfire has broken out in Double Duke State Forest, about 25 kilometres south of Woodburn.

Advice from the Rural Fire Service is that the fire has been brought under control but has already burnt out more than 715 hectares.

Another fire at nearby Trustram Hill burnt out two hectares of land near local homes before being controlled yesterday.
