The Mount Compass fire in South Australia kept crews busy as fire ripped through grass and scrub. At one point the CFS issued an emergency warning as the fire threatened several houses.

The area burnt out was around 90HA under rather ordinary conditions. Multiple stations attended and were supported with water bombing aircraft and choppers. Even a day later there are still multiple strike teams on scene working to make it safe.

No houses were lost and by the sounds of it, it was a hard fight for crews to keep it that way.
