The Victorian Government’s Country Fire Authority has told thousands of residents in the Brookland Greens estate it is no longer safe to stay in their homes because of the Casey council’s toxic tip.
There are over eight hundred homes in the estate, with thousands of residents.
In an “awareness message” posted on their website, the CFA said:
the most safe option at this stage is for all residents of the estate to relocate from their homes.
A well placed source within the agency told VEXNEWS confidentially, “The levels of methane gas we have detected in various parts of the estate are twelve times the safe limit. We had no choice but to recommend to residents they leave. It isn’t safe there. This could be Victoria’s version of Chernobyl.”
Potential triggers of a Cranbourne inferno include people cooking in their homes, smoking cigarettes, mobile phone towers, electricity infrastructure, lawn mowers, automobiles. “Anything metallic that creates a spark when it connects with something could be a big problem” one expert told VEXNEWS this afternoon.
This is a shocking new development in the toxic tip crisis, that threatens to engulf the Casey council, tightly managed by Mike Tyler its chief executive. The landfill site was opened in the early 1990s and was managed by Tyler and his team since 1994 when he was promoted to become the council boss. Since then his job has never been re-advertised despite the protests of several councillors.
We understand that a pack of journalists has descended on the estate, picking up on what could be the greatest council-caused environmental catastrophe in Victorian history.
