Fuel Reduction Program

What's Burning Now?

This map displays the fuel reduction burns planned, burning now and completed for this season as part of the State Government's Fuel Reduction Program. To see information about other fires that may be happening in your area, click here.

Fuel Reduction burns are only conducted when it is safe and smart to do so. Therefore the schedule of burns may change daily, based on the weather. This helps to ensure that fuel reduction burns remain under control and that the effect of smoke on the community is reduced.

It is usually safest to conduct fuel reduction burns in autumn. Autumn is when the fuel on the ground is at its driest, which will reduce smoke from the fire. A smaller burning program is conducted in Spring, however fuel reduction burns can be conducted at any time the conditions are favourable, so check back here regularly.
