Smoke from barbecue prompts fire service call-out

Smoke from a barbecue prompted a call-out for firefighters last night.

A crew from Richmond attended the town’s Riversisde Road at about 10.15pm after reports of smoke in a wooded area.

On arrival crews confirmed this as a false alarm with the smoke being from a barbecue.

Firefighters extinguished the barbecue and gave advice to those present.
