Mower up in flames
AN elderly Dorrigo couple escaped injury when their ride-on mower caught on fire on Saturday morning.
They had just finished their lawn in Acacia Lane and put the mower under their house when the mower caught on fire.
In a strange twist, the fire melted plumbing and water was released onto the flames.
Firefighters attended the scene, and the local community offered to help the couple with repairs, police said.
