Police are investigating the tragic circumstances surrounding the death of a child in the Adelaide Hills overnight. Acting Superintendent Julie Thomas, Acting Officer in Charge, Hills Fleurieu Local Service Area, spoke to the media at the Mount Barker Police Station this morning. The 2-year-old girl was found deceased on a rural property on Willis Road at Bugle Ranges just before 7am. Police are investigating the death and are treating it as suspicious. A 38-year-old Adelaide Hills woman has been arrested and charged with murder. She has not applied for bail at this time and will appear in the Mount Barker Magistrates Court later today. There are no further details at this time.
Thousands of residents have fled their homes to relief centres and staging posts in the Adelaide Hills since the emergency warning was first raised on Friday afternoon. Residents - many with personal items and pets in hand - have been advised not to return home for several days because the fire within 30km of central Adelaide is not expected to be contained until early next week. Ian Tanner from the Country Fire Service told one group of locals: "there is not a fire service anywhere in the world that could put this fire out at the moment." With temperatures above 40C and winds over 90km/h, the CFS said the area "is being confronted by a fire that hasn't been since 1983" when the Ash Wednesday fires claimed 28 lives in South Australia.
