Bushfires near Guyra

leave a comment »

Wednesday 2 March 1932, The Sydney Morning Herald

GUYRA, Tuesday.

Bushfires swept over Messrs. K. Gordon's
and B. Jackson's properties at Baldersleigh,
and many volunteers from Guyra drove out
to give assistance. At one period it seemed
certain that Mr. Gordon's homestead and wool-
shed would be destroyed, but eventually the
fires were got under control.

At Tenterden also fires broke out, and set-
tlers had a trying time working day and night
to prevent an extension and to save the
adjacent holdings.
