Canberra bushfire inquest announced for army helicopter that sparked blaze | ABC News

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Canberra bushfire inquest announced for army helicopter that sparked blaze | ABC News” – below is their description.

It took just minutes for an army helicopter to spark a devastating fire south of Canberra in January 2020.

It destroyed homes in NSW and 80 per cent of Namadgi National Park, but there are still questions around the cause and origin of the Orroral Valley Fire.

Now an ACT coroner has agreed to launch her own inquiry – saying it’s in the public interest to find out why it took the army so long to report the fire.
