Weekend police round-up – injured bushwalker rescued, bushfire started by fireworks, drug arrest



Bushwalker rescue

A badly twisted ankle saw emergency services spring into action after a 28-year-old Bligh Park woman was injured on a bush walk near Wheeny Creek.

The incident at Gees Arm, South Trail required special operation ambulance officers and SES officers, due to the rugged terrain.

SES officers helped stretcher the woman to a more suitable location where ambulance officers attended to her injury. Once stabilised, she was taken by ambulance to Nepean Hospital for treatment.

Fireworks suspected in bushfire flare-up

A scrub fire almost certainly started by people messing around with fireworks broke out near Colonial Ave and Rifle Range Rd, Bligh Park just after midnight on Sunday.

Police and fire crews were on the scene quickly and found an area approximately 20 metres by 20 metres on fire which was quickly extinguished.

Whilst investigating the cause of the fire, Police were made aware that fireworks had been let off in the area, which they believe was the likely cause.
