A helicopter also was used to water bomb the blaze."The fire burnt past several properties yesterday but fortunately fire crews were able to help the residents," Mr Carroll said."A fire at Burria, west of Nowra, reignited yesterday and a fire had begun in the state forest at Brooman, west of Termeil.Further south, the RFS held community meetings yesterday at Dignams Creek and Tilba Tilba, to inform residents about a fire burning at nearby Mt Dromedary.
