Ballarat breakfast report: January 10

WEATHER

It was a balmly evening last night, which was perfect if you were at the Road Nationals on Sturt Street but perhaps not so great if you were trying to sleep. There was an overnight low of 18 degrees.

Another lovely day is on the cards today, with a top temperature of 31 degrees predicted. The fire danger is high and the UV index is predicted to be extreme, so remember to put on that sunscreen.

POLICE

Ballarat Highway Patrol attended a single car rollover on Butlers Road and Yankee Flat Road in Navigators yesterday afternoon. A family of five was in the car but only suffered minor cuts and abrasions.

Ballarat police also yesterday permanently impounded a driver's Holden utefor repeated hoon offences.

FIRE

Fire services also attended the crash, but were not required to cut anyone out of the vehicle. 

They also attended a car leaking LPG at the Coles Express on Drummond Street and Sturt Street last night. They isolated the service station and discovered a leak in the line between the tank and the motor. The driver was able to take the car home on petrol.

There was also an alarm at the Telstra depot, where smoke was discovered on the first floor from an electrical fault. Telstra technicians were able to sort out the fault.

Ballarat City Fire also received two hoax calls last night for fires, which they said was disappointing.

AMBULANCE

Local paramedics attended the car crash and transported three children and a female to the Base Hospital mainly for cuts and abrasions.

SES

Nothing to report.

V/LINE

No delays for commuters heading in and out of Ballarat.
