NT police say fires are ‘under control’ in Territory Day aftermath after more than 100 incidents

Northern Territory emergency services say firefighters responded to more than 100 incidents during the Territory Day celebrations.

Last night, thousands of tons of fireworks were set off in the Northern Territory during the one night of the year when it is legal to set off fireworks.

NT Police Watch Commander Josh Cunningham said people were mostly well behaved, but the wind kept firefighters busy.

“They seemed to have everything under control last night,” he said.

“There were a lot of grass fires, I think the weather of the past few days, with a little rain, luckily cooperated.

“But [there was] no damage or major material damage.”
