The land-holder was allegedly working with the welder when the fire started about 1.30pm in sweltering conditions that reminded fire-fighters of the devastating Bangor blaze in the area last year.

A Country Fire Services spokeswoman said the land-holder would be charged over the incident.

She reminded farmers of the dangers of using tools and implements that could ignite tinder-dry grass and scrub land.

The fire was contained about 5pm by 16 fire trucks from Jamestown, Melrose, Wirrabara, Crystal Brook, Port Germein, Wilmington, Booleroo Centre, Mambray Creek and Stirling North.

Four water bombers dumped retardant on the fireground after taking off from Stirling North airstrip.

“We are still monitoring the area. We will just keep our eyes on it for the next couple of days,” the spokeswoman said.

BREAKING NEWS: Shaolin cheque to be presented Monday afternoon

Cr Gash said she had received a text message about the final payment, which includes rates and interest payments, on Monday morning.

“I’ve never doubted the Abbot. In discussions over the weekend he saidhe had been very concerned about the animosity about the payment and so had decided to present the cheque in person.

“I am absolutely excited about the prospect of the Shaolin temple and am thrilled the Abbot can come and present the cheque himself.”

Cr Gash took aim at critics of the sale process, which made headlines when one of the cheques for the sale of the land was dishonoured.

“I think the people who have ridiculed council and the Shaolin over this will take a second look at themselves and learn to have a bit of faith.”

FOR the first time since 2011, the Wimmera-Mallee Cricket Association A Grade finals will not feature St Arnaud or St Mary’s.

Instead, the finals will be contested by minor premier Brim-Kellalac-Sheep Hills, Donald, Jeffcott and Charlton.

The Eagles, the premiership favourite lost only one match for the year on its way to finishing on top of the ladder.

It breezed by St Arnaud on Saturday in the final game of the home and away season.

Set a target of 148 by the Saints on day one, the Eagles had little trouble chasing down the total after early missteps.

Openers Chris McPherson, four runs, and Matt Crisp, 13, fell cheaply to leave Brim-Kellalac-Sheep Hills at 2-19, but Leigh Dovaston, 44, and Mark McPherson 46 not out, guided the Eagles to 4-160 from 31 overs.

Harley Durward was the most effective of the St Arnaud bowlers, taking 2-15 from five overs.

Wychproof-Narraport defeated Donald to end its season on a high note.

The Demons held Donald to 9-122 from its 40 overs to win by 32 runs. Demon Jonathan Grylls’ knock of 70 set up his team’s innings of 6-154.

Cody Turner provided a match-winning four-over spell of bowling for Wycheproof-Narraport, taking 3-8.

Marnoo’s bid to win a game fell just short against Jeffcott.

Facing a 256-run target, Marnoo openers Brylie Cameron, 40, and Stuart Lang, 36, had a 58-run partnership, but a middle-order collapse doomed Marnoo, bowled out for 220.

St Mary’s defeated Charlton outright in the last match of the round.

The final scorecard was not supplied before the Mail-Times went to press.
