A VEGETATION fire covering about three hectares on Lake Repulse Rd, Ouse, is still being patrolled at regular intervals by Tasmania Fire Service crews.
Some 395 hectares of grassland and light bush land was burnt out by a fast moving fire on Sunday, between Lanes Tier Rd and Victoria Valley Rd near Ouse. There is now no fire activity in the area and TFS crews have consolidated control lines throughout Monday and Tuesday.
Firefighters will patrol the area over the next week. A small amount of smoke may be seen in the area and people shouldn’t be alarmed by this. Anyone with concerns about fire activity in the area should report it by calling triple zero (000).
