Ballarat breakfast report: January 5

WEATHER

You might have noticed the sun peering through your window this morning when you woke up, well it's here to stay most of the day with an expected maximum of 20 degrees.

A few showers are expected to develop in the early afternoon, becoming less likely in the late afternoon and clearing during the evening.

POLICE

Praising the behaviour of Ballaratians over the weekend, it was all quiet on the Police front with no major call outs. 

FIRE

Local firefighters were kept busy last night with fire trucks from Ballarat City, Wendouree and Invermay Park stations attending a fire in Invermay Park at 4.45pm yesterday.

Fire investigators are still looking through findings this morning to determine the cause of the fire, but it is not being treated as suspicious.

Crews were also called out to three fire burn-off investigations in Ballarat East, Black Hill and Wendouree and attended an alarm at the Grammar boatshed this morning which turned out to be a false alarm.

SES

It was a quiet night for local SES crews, with not even a single tree over a road for the crews to clean up.

AMBULANCE

Ambulance Victoria crews were called to the scene of yesterdays Invermay Park fire where a firefighter attending the scene was taken to St John of God hospital with minor injuries after the roof of the house collapsed.

ON THE AGENDA

This afternoon we'll be heading down to Lake Wendouree for the City of Ballarat's Summer Sundays free live music concert, from 5pm to 8pm. Hopefully the sun will still be out.
