$115,000 structure fire at Ardrossan - 13 May 2022: At approximately 11:30am today, CFS crews were called to a structure fire on Fourth Street, Ardrossan, on the eastern Yorke Peninsula.

Four CFS trucks from Ardrossan, Maitland and Port Victoria responded, along with a bulk water carrier from Yorke Valley Group. Upon arrival, crews found a motorhome parked on a residential property fully alight.

Whilst the motorhome and an adjoining carport were destroyed, firefighters were able to prevent the fire from spreading to the home, with only superficial damage to the façade of the property reported.

Losses are estimated at $115,000, and thankfully nobody was injured, however SA Ambulance attended to monitor the resident as a precaution.

SAPOL are on scene, although the fire is not believed to be suspicious and CFS crews will remain on site to monitor and clean up.

Message From SEALINK ferry Services to and From Kangaroo Island

To KI Residents and SeaLink Customers,

As many of you are aware, we will be operating with one ferry (the Sealion 2000), as of today for one month. Our Spirit of Kangaroo Island (SPOKI) ferry set sail for Port Lincoln today for drydocking to undergo urgent repairs and annual maintenance.
In addition to adding extra earlier and later departures for Sealion 2000, we have been working closely with our fuel suppliers to help us lighten the fuel load on each ferry service. This will require the fuel suppliers to increase the frequency of refuelling, but will enable us to safely increase the tonnage capacity for each service, therefore opening up more vehicle deck space.

We know this is very important to Kangaroo Island residents and SeaLink customers, so if you are looking for vehicle space in the coming weeks, we urge you to contact us on 13 13 01 and join a waitlist on the services you would prefer. We will then work through the waitlist process and contact you if we are able to accommodate your needs. Once waitlist customers have been accommodated, we will free up any additional space approximately 48 to 72 hours prior to departure.

Please also be reminded a morning and evening SeaLink Shuttle Bus service between Kingscote, American River and Penneshaw, and a SeaLink Connection Bus from Cape Jervis to Adelaide operates and is an alternative way to get to and from Adelaide. We also believe that rental cars have been repositioned to Cape Jervis as a another option.
Once again, we thank you for your patience, understanding and support during this time.
SJ Tilbury, General Manager, SeaLink SA
