leave a comment »

Monday 12 December 1904, The Advertiser (Adelaide)

Bush fires are raging in the vicinity of Armidale. Yesterday an outbreak started at Mr. J. Bliss’ farm, and travelled in a north-easterly direction through Tilbuster, Ground Creek, Thalgarrah, and Pint Pot. Another fire started at Castle Doyle and burned towards Cooney. Beyond the destruction of several miles of fencing and thousands of acres of grass no serious damage was done.
