CFS crews battle blazes in SE

32 fire fighters have battled a grass fire through the night that broke out on private property in Carpenter rocks.

CFS crews were alerted to the fire just before 9pm last night which they were able to contain by the early morning.

1 hectare of private property and 1 hectare of reserve land was burnt.

There is still one crew on site monitoring the scene. No injuries have been reported and it's unknown how the fire started.

The fire came just a few hours after CFS crews put out another grass fire near Kongorong, sparked by a fallen power line in the early afternoon, that left thousands of local residents without power.
