Firies ensure locals don’t pay the Price

EXTREME heat and ferocious winds spurred a bushfire along the Yorke Highway, threatening Price and heading for Tiddy Widdy Beach and Ardrossan, last Wednesday, November 20.

The fire caused the highway to be closed as temperatures reached 41.2 degrees Celsius, accompanied by wind gusts of up to 60km/h.
