Fire

Thorpdale 3835

Fire risk as it currently stands is minimal on this property. It is in the middle of a
heavily developed agricultural area, which has mostly been cleared of trees and native
vegetation. Further more, between the primary and secondary fire sectors are a series of
river courses and wet species communities. These conditions make it a low risk property.
But in the event of a fire, the property is well equipped with two large water reservoirs for
use.
