GLENBURNIE FIRE UPDATE

ISSUED FOR GLENBURNIE

The SA Country Fire Service (CFS) advises that the fire burning within a pine plantation near Glenburnie, east of Mount Gambier in the Lower South East, has been controlled.

The fire started around 4:30pm on Tuesday, 22 February 2022, and burnt approximately 21 hectares of pine plantations.

Whilst a reduced threat has been issued for this fire, forestry crews from One Forty One, supported where appropriate by CFS and other forest industry brigades, will be continuing with firefighting activities for a number of days as piles of pine residue continue to burn within control lines.

As such, the public should be aware that there will be emergency vehicle traffic in the area, and smoke is likely to continue to be visible over the coming days.
