Incident Update for Ravine Fire on Kangaroo Island


Overnight crews responded to several trees fires and minor incidents. Work continues on mopping up and blacking out.

Subject to suitable weather conditions a burn is planned to commence this afternoon to the west of Vivonne Bay.

The aim of the burn is to provide strategic protection for the township and to assist in preventing the further spread of fire to the east under the forecast fire weather for Wednesday.

Residents in this area need to be aware that they may see smoke and flame from this planned event.

For any unattended fires please call Triple Zero (000).

As part of the ongoing power restoration efforts powerlines are being replaced near the Playford Highway to the east of Parndana.

Due to terrain and vegetation a drone will be used to complete the task of slinging a replacement powerline.

Drone use when aerial fire fighting operations are occurring is usually not allowed, however the planning for this has been done in consultation with CFS air operations.
