The article’s contents were mentioned in broadcast news across the State, and CEO Mick Bourke spoke to ABC 774 radio’s John Faine this morning about the allegations.
Listen to the interview here:
Mr Bourke said that the first time these concerns came to his attention was yesterday morning when the Herald Sun asked for comment for an article they would run today.
CFA has been examining the claims that were raised in the articles.
"We need to conduct an investigation and if there are matters there pertaining to pollutions and if those pollutions or chemicals could have had impacts on people, we will address that," he told ABC.
"We are taking some action to get a hygienist on site to give some confidence to those that are there now."
Mr Bourke said there was no evidence of any risk to current visitors or users of Fiskville.
He said CFA is checking records and will investigate this matter including claims of a report from the early 1990s when there was clean-up work done at the site.
Mr Bourke also said that he would like to hear from anyone with information on this report or any other information about issues raised in the article.
