NT Police say fires ‘under control’ in Territory Day aftermath following more than 100 incidents

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

Last night, thousands of tonnes of pyrotechnics were set off across the Northern Territory during the one evening a year it is legal to let off fireworks.

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

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

“There was a large amount of grass fires, I think thankfully the weather over the last couple of days, with a little bit of rain, worked on their side.

“But [there was] no damage or any large damage to property.”
