Meadowbank bushfire meeting

THE Tasmania Fire Service will hold a public meeting at the Bushy Park War Memorial Swimming Pool tomorrow (Saturday) at 1pm, to update the local community on the Meadowbank fire. This update will include information on the current situation and what TFS has planned over the next few days.

Community members are encouraged to attend the meeting to gain firsthand information on the current situation. More than 5000 hectares has been burnt but the fire is largely contained and firefighting crews will continue to strengthen containment lines.

The public is asked to remain vigilant and report any new fires or suspicious activity by phoning triple zero (000). Continue to monitor ABC Local Radio and for further information and instructions.

The Tasmania Fire Service, the Parks and Wildlife Service and Forestry Tasmania are continuing to work together to control this fire. At times there may be smoke in the area due to backburning operations near Rockmount Rd and along Ellendale Rd, from Gordon River Rd north to Jones River Rd.

There are no reported road closures.
