Burns noticed the fire as she drove home from work, and stopped to help. She worked to evacuate nearby homes before helping to contain the blaze with a hose while firefighters arrived. In the end nobody was hurt, and major property damage was avoided. PSO Burns said “having been a CFA volunteer for some time I understood the importance of acting quickly. I’m just glad no one was injured, and the damage was kept to a minimum.”
Car over cliff AN elderly woman was lucky to escape serious injury when her car drove over the cliff after a two-car collision on the Esplanade, Mount Martha, last week. The woman, 89, of Mount Martha, was able to push open the door of her Lexus sedan and crawl 15 metres back up to the road, 11.30am, Friday 4 June. The woman’s car went over the cliff after colliding with a Mercedes sedan being driven by a 77-year-old woman, also of Mount Martha, near Park Road. They were the only occupants. Neither woman was injured but both were taken by ambulance to hospital for assessment – one to Frankston Hospital and the other to a private hospital. Senior Constable Travis Cute, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said the older woman was “very lucky” to avoid serious injury. “She was quite spritely for her age,” he said. A tow truck hauled the Lexus back up the cliff. Both cars were towed away.
