Hazard reduction burn tomorrow at Stromlo

The ACT Rural Fire Service will assist a rural landholder tomorrow, Saturday 6 July, 2013, weather permitting, to conduct a hazard reduction burn at a rural property on the Cotter Road, Stromlo.

The burn will commence at 10:30am and finish at 3:00pm.

Two heavy tankers and 10 personnel will conduct the burn of approximately 48 hectares of grassland.

The ACT Handy Map grid reference is I12.

Temporary smoke cover may occur. Every effort is made to conduct the burn in weather conditions that will minimise the impact of smoke in the area.

People with asthma in particular should continue their medication and consult their general practitioner if they have any difficulties.
