The fire burnt out a large area alongside Dick Ward Drive, Coconut Grove, at about 1.30pm. Fire watch commander Terry Trewin said firies from the Marrara unit back burnt to contain it. He said the fire eventually burnt itself out. Flames from the burning grass could be seen leaping more than 5m into the air. Weather bureau senior forecaster Mark Kersemakers said a cool change would sweep through the Territory later this week, increasing the fire danger. At the moment, the fire danger is very high, and as the week continues and the cool change comes through, that will take the fire danger (level) to severe, he said. Rollover insanity hits NT By DAMIEN McCARTNEY A ROLLOVER on a major Darwin arterial road late Saturday night was the sixth lid-skid in 24 hours. A blue Holden sedan rolled on the corner of Tiger Brennan Drv and Tivendale Rd about 10.15pm. It was the only car involved in the crash. St John Ambulance operations manger Craig Garraway said the female driver was the only occupant. The female had minor injuries and was taken to Royal Darwin Hospital. Watch commander Senior Sergeant Bob Harrison said the car came to rest on its roof, off the road. The crash marked the end of a horror 24 hours on Territory roads. The madness started at 11pm on Friday when a Holden Commodore flipped after clipping a kerb when turning into Bradshaw Tce in Alice Springs. About 4.20am on Saturday, a man, 34, fell asleep at the wheel when travelling 120km/h and veered off the road at Noonamah, rolling the vehicle three times. About 20 minutes later, a woman, 25, rolled a dual cab Toyota Hilux three times on the Kakadu Highway near Pine Creek. The woman and three passengers were treated by passing medics. Another woman, 24, rolled her Daewoo Lanos at Hidden Valley after she tried to reach a cigarette lighter on the floor. Her blood alcohol level was .073 per cent. Another roll-over incident occurred in Oliver Street, Rapid Creek. Police found the driver at home later.
