Highway hazard-reduction fires

WEATHER permitting, the Tasmania Fire Service plans to conduct a hazard reduction burn in the Granton area on Wednesday and Thursday this week (June 1-2). The purpose is to remove vegetation along the roadside between 585 and 779 Lyell Hwy up to the Pipeline Fire Trail.

It is anticipated that smoke might impact upon residents in the Granton and Molesworth areas. Members of the public passing by should not be concerned as fire crews will be in the area. This work is part of the strategic fire management plan for the Mt Faulkner area that has been conducted over the last three months by the Tasmania Fire Service.
