This piece covers the first night of the Longreach fire trials. Every year, the volunteer fire fighters of Longreach train for six weeks leading up to this event.

There are 18 of them who compete in eight events over the two nights.

On Monday the 26th of November, the first evening, there were two wet and two dry events.

I would have to say the wet events were the most popular with all the children watching taking the chance to "cool down" in the streets.

Evenings like this have been happening in Longreach since 1928!
