Grampians Group of Fire Brigades has claimed the Remlaw fire could have been contained far more quickly if smaller CFA and private fire-fighting units had not been delayed by ‘inflexible’ and ‘restrictive’ police road blocks. The claims form part of the group’s submission to the 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission. The Remlaw fire burnt 2300 hectares, destroying 11 houses, Horsham golf clubhouse, 71 sheds, 148 kilometres of fencing and 52 head of stock.
