Incident Update - COLES Bushfire


More than 150 firefighters from South Australia and Victoria remain in attendance at the Coles fire near Lucindale in the state's lower south east, where the fire continues to burn out of control in bluegum plantations, scrub and grassland.

CFS crews will continue to be supported by Victorian CFA, DEW, Farm Fire Units, forest industry crews, heavy plant machinery and aerial firefighting resources. SA Police, SES and Salvation Army are also in attendance.

Crews will continue working along the fires' perimeter and to actively fight any areas that may flare up due to the daytime weather forecast.

Whilst overnight conditions eased slightly, an increase in temperature and wind today is expected, which could hinder the efforts of crews on the ground. Smoke will continue to be seen and smelt by residents in the areas to the south, southwest and west.

The community is reminded to stay vigilant and monitor conditions throughout the next few days as its expected that the conditions will continuously change.

Road closures are from Conmurra Rd and Legges Lane, Andres Land and Legges Lane and Conmurra Rd and Andres Lane and are only accessible to bona fide residents, emergency services and relief agencies.
