Forestry Tasmania joins the fight

FORESTRY Tasmania staff are helping to fight a number of wildfires around the state. In particular they are working with the Tasmania Fire Service to control a number of fires south of Wayatinah in the Derwent Valley, some of which are on state forest.
 
 Forestry crews are also working with the Parks and Wildlife Service on the Snake Rd fire on the boundary between the World Heritage Area and state forest on the crest of the Gordon Range west of the Florentine Valley. This fire was ignited by a lightning strike two weeks ago.

Information about current wildfire incidents is available on the Tasmania Fire Service website.
