These were caused by the explosion of canisters at an illegal dwelling as the Land Invasion Unit worked to clear the bushes.

The unit, accompanied by Ward 66 councillor JP Prinsloo and the Bluff Alliance’s Andy Rossell, were operating in the area to clear the bush land of illegal dwellings.

The operation is ongoing, and they are moving in a southerly direction.
