Across the road from GZ, is the location and causation of the Pomborneit-Weerite fire, which started at 13:14 hours on February 7, 2009. The local Brigades were quick to respond, however due to the ferocity of the conditions (max temperature recorded was 45.1°C, North- North Westerly wind speed of 100-113kph), the extremely fast running grass fire moved quickly, headed in a South-South Easterly direction, towards Pomborneit.
