When: 30 April 2012
Type: Industrial Oven Fire
Shortly after midday on April 30th, Hastings Fire Brigade responded to a report of a Factory Fire located in Marine Parade with Tyabb supporting. Multiple calls were received with black smoke issuing from the area.
After arriving additional support was requested from Bittern, Moorooduc and Somerville due to the limited water supply. The occupants attempted to extinguish the fire prior to the arrival of crews, with two receiving injuries and later transported to Frankston Hospital. The fire was largely confined to an industrial oven and was quickly extinguished on arrival. A fire investigation was conducted and the cause was deemed not suspicious.
