The ACT Rural Fire Service (ACTRFS) will conduct a Hazard Reduction Burn tomorrow night, Thursday 16 February 2012, weather permitting, at Fyshwick.
The ACTRFS Jerrabomberra Brigade will commence stage two of the burn near the Monaro Highway from 7:00pm – 10:00pm.
Four heavy tankers and 15 personnel will conduct the burn covering a total area of approximately one hectare.
The purpose of the burn is to complete fuel reduction works that commenced earlier this month so that ActewAGL can assess the condition of the lagoon embankments at the Fyshwick Sewage Treatment Plant, in order to accurately scope any required maintenance.
The ACT Handy Map grid reference for the burn is L13.
