The Garvoc fire commenced on the evening of 17 March 2018 burning in excess of 4,000 hectares. The fire caused significant damage to residential and farming properties.

It is alleged that the fire was ignited as a result of the failure of a rotten timber power pole on Powercor’s electrical network.
