2015 Scotsburn Bushfire


On 19 December 2015, 4000 hectares of land and 12 houses were burnt in the area of Scotsburn, south of Ballarat in central west Victoria.

Maddens Lawyers has now launched a Class Action on behalf of local landowners affected by the fire.

The blaze broke out in Finns Road, Scotsburn, around 3pm on Saturday 19 December, burning more than 4000 hectares and 12 houses in the Scotsburn region.

The Class Action was been launched in order to help local landowners achieve compensation for losses that were not covered by their current insurance.
