Rain is not a simple blessing

Rain, in fact hail, helped fire crews last night when they were
battling a deliberately lit fire at the inter-section of the Plenty and
Stuart Highways, a 45 minute drive north of Alice Springs.

It was but the latest in the "absurd number" of deliberately lit
fires along the roadsides of a widespread area of Central Australia,
says Neil Phillips, Acting Senior Fire Officer for Bushfires NT.

While helpful last night, the rain may pose a problem further down the track. KIERAN FINNANE reports.

Posted Oct 4, 2011: Interesting story on
the ABC about concerns in South Australia about buffel grass invading
from the NT. The introduced grass species is a major contributor to the
seriousness of the current bushfires. Today rain is providing relief.
Search the Alice Springs News Online archive for articles about buffel grass.
