Worker forced to jump into the ocean from Whyalla jetty after it catches on fire

Worker forced to jump into the ocean from Whyalla jetty after it catches on fire A man has been forced to jump into the ocean for his own safety after the Whyalla jetty caught fire this afternoon. The jetty has been closed to the public since 2017, and was in the process of being demolished. South Australian MFS media liaison officer Nicolle Bradley said the fire was reported about 12:45pm today at Buttlingarra Way. She said the cause of the fire was from sparks from cutting equipment coming into contact with combustibles. "Workers were present at the time, with one having to self-evacuate by jumping into the ocean," she said. She said the estimated damage bill was still being assessed.

Some of the waves were as high as 25 feet. The beach was getting eaten away as each rouge wave came in. The force of the Ocean is nothing to ignore.

A worker was forced to jump into the ocean after a jetty on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula caught alight on Wednesday afternoon.

About 12.45pm fire crews were called to the Whyalla jetty, where 75 metres of the 150-metre long, plastic-coated structure had gone up in flames.

A Metropolitan Fire Service spokesperson said the fire was caused by sparks from cutting equipment coming into contact with combustible material.

Several workers were present, with one receiving treatment from paramedics after being forced to jump into the water to escape the blaze.

It took four crews about 30 minutes to bring the fire under control, and the damage bill is still being investigated.

Fire rages through upper floor of St Kilda apartment block.
MFB crews went to the Dalgety Street address after 'panicked' calls were received by its triple zero call centre.
