Update: Meads Creek Fire – Monday 10

Filed in Recent News by December 10, 2019

YESTERDAY operations were considering reopening Ringwood Road, however the road remains closed and will be reassessed on Wednesday afternoon.

The fire has burnt through more than 21,000 hectares of the Goulburn River National Park and some adjoining private property, but is listed as “being controlled”.

Today, firefighters will continue to consolidate containment lines with earth moving equipment and the support of water bombing aircraft.

Yesterday, back burning operations were undertaken near Hamburger Hill to prevent potential fire escaping into neighbouring farmland.

Back burning will be completed when conditions allow.

If residents feel threatened by the fire they should phone 000 immediately, not a neighbour or friend.
