Ballarat breakfast report: April 26


Ballarat is forecast to reach a top of 15 degrees today, cloudy with showers in the afternoon.

Police had nothing to report, saying it was a very quiet Anzac Day evening with only a few routine matters. 


Ballarat City Fire was only called to a few incidents overnight, including burn-offs and barbecues getting a bit out of hand in people's backyard.

Senior station officer David Mounier said the fire danger period may be over, but it doesn't mean it's a free for all.

"You still have abide by the by-laws and consider your neighbours," he said. 

"Many of the items being burned can be recycled, so remember to be mindful of that." 


Ambulance had nothing to report. 

Local SES volunteers participated in the Anzac Day service on Friday, providing drivers for golf carts transporting veterans.
