ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Defence allowed to vet evidence presented to inquiry into fire sparked by army helicopter | ABC News” – below is their description.

A coronial inquiry has begun into the Orroral Valley fire which burned for a month, destroying most of Namadgi National Park early last year.

Coroner Lorraine Walker is looking into the 45 minutes between when an Australian Army helicopter accidentally sparked the fire and when ACT authorities were made aware of the fire’s location, with a particular emphasis on roles and communications.

However, the Department of Defence has been granted a suppression order, allowing them to vet evidence which may present security issues.
