Police say the incident is a timely reminder that the start of the Fire Danger Season has now commenced in the Murraylands and is set to start on 15 November in Adelaide Metro, Kangaroo Island and the Mount Lofty Ranges and that any fire-related incidents are more dangerous during the season and can put lives at risk.

The CFS website has useful information about the fire danger season.
