Early Saturday morning police and fire crews received calls from concerned residents in Carnegie Street at Claremont, who reported seeing a bright light igniting a fire in a nearby paddock.
Tasmania Fire Service officer Scott Vinen says the blaze was quickly put out, leaving an obvious burnt patch.
They thought maybe it was flare but there was no evidence for what started the fire. And, they don’t plan to investigate further. Any little spark could have ignited this. But we don’t know from this news story who reported it, what they reported and if that was actually accurate. So, we end up shrugging, don’t know.
