Todays burn (7-9-13) was at West Heathcote, assisting NPWS. This large burn is part 1 of 3 stages to burn out the western edge of Heathcote from Heathcote road to Burns Road a total of 220 hectares.
The weather has remained favorable for the past 3 weeks, we will wait to see how it plays out this week.
