Casino Rural Fire Brigade has had a busy weekend – and it’s not over yet.

On Friday, November 24, Casino RFS attended a structure on fire, likely caused by an electrical issue, at 10pm at Collins Creek, Kyogle.

When Kyogle RFS and Kyogle Fire and Rescue arrived, the Casino crew returned to the station.

On Saturday, November 25 at 1am Casino RFS was called to an incident where a van had collided with a calf at Leeville.

The driver was taken by ambulance to hospital for observation. Unfortunately, the calf didn’t survive.

Crews stayed on the scene until the van was removed and the road could be cleaned before returning to the station.
