Electric light poles were burnt down at the top of Bulli Pass last night, and residents were left without electric light and power. Yesterday afternoon, the Panorama Hotel and the Kiosk were seriously threatened. Tables and forms in the grounds were destroyed. The kiosk was saved by two passing lorry drivers, who fought the fire back from the main building. The licensee of the hotel saved his poultry by removing them to the hotel cellar.
