Volunteers ‘angry’ as CFA station hit by thieves in the midst of raging bushfires

The Parwan CFA brigade were unable to go to the aid of firefighters on the front line of bushfires in the state’s southwest after being targeted by thieves on the weekend.

The station, just outside Bacchus Marsh, was broken into on Saturday night and a long list of items were stolen.

Captain Graeme Miles (above) told Neil Mitchell someone jemmied the door open, leaving the the 30-member brigade unable to attend the bushfires in Victoria’s southwest.

“We were supposed to get down to Cobden but with all the mucking around with police we couldn’t go,” Graeme said.

“We had a call out last night but we’ve got no BA so if we’ve got a house fire in the area we’ll have to call another brigade to come and help us.

“It’s the third break in we’ve had in the last couple of years.”
