Rehabilitation work starts after Wayatinah fire

MORE than a fortnight after it was first reported, the Wayatinah bushfire remains contained. 25 personnel with nine vehicles from the Parks and Wildlife Service and Forestry Tasmania continue to patrol and extinguish hotspots in the World Heritage Area and in State Forests.

Tasmania Fire Service crews will patrol the fire boundary on private property when the fire danger is high to ensure that this section of the fire remains safe. Rehabilitation activities have started on sections of the fire which are deemed safe for these operations.

Long Spur (B station) Rd, Florentine Rd, Dawson Rd (north of the Pillies Link road) Rd the southern end of the Catagunya Rad remain closed to all people other than firefighting personnel and residents.
