Crews from FRNSW 468 Tweed Heads and 391 Murwillumbah responded to assist with the recovery of a bogged excavator in South Murwillumbah. A 25 Tonne excavator was stuck in a creek and while water was pumped from around the excavator firefighters laid booms in the creek to stop any environmental damage.

There were no injuries at this incident and another excavator had to be called to help remove the first one from the creek.
