Ballarat breakfast report: December 23


The weather is continuing along on its inconsistent path. 

Glimpses of sunshine came through last week but today we can expect a gloomy 17-degrees with scattered showers. 

However, we can expect some nice weather on  Christmas day with a top of 28-degrees and a very low chance of rain predicted. 


Ballarat Police had another quiet night last night with nothing to report. 

It comes after another quiet weekend for the local police force. Friday night's Operation Tradie, a blitz on anti-social behaviour,  was deemed a success by the police with no major incidents reported.

However, a man in Kurunjang is feeling lucky after a car crashed through the front door of his house overnight. The vehicle narrowly missed his bedroom where he was sound asleep. 

The driver of the vehicle underwent a breath test and recorded a blood alcohol reading of .133


It was a busy night for Ballarat fire crews. 

The first call out was to a fire at Mount Rowan where fire crews put out a small truck fire. The truck was believed to be a rental vehicle. Crews from Miners Rest, Wendouree and Ballarat City attended the blaze. 

Two further call outs to false alarms kept fire crews busy. 


Nothing to report from overnight. 


All trains are running on time according to V/line website.
