We had some really LOUD
thunder claps last night. I'd reckon there's a pretty good chance this fire may have been started by a lightning strike. Big piles of compacted scrap metal at the site makes a great conductor after all
That site has been a very contentious issue in the local community
as well, making lots of noise at all hours, heavy truck volumes, dust etc. I'll wager this will completely trash their public image. Supposedly their operations are to be moved to down Dandenong way, some time.... I think the council may be forced to press for a more rapid move now.
