Fire bans off

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

AS THE bush­fire threat climbs, all fire per­mits have been can­celled for the North and South Bur­nett re­gions.

The ban was put in place at 8am yes­ter­day and will re­main un­til fur­ther no­tice.

“The dry and hot con­di­tions across the re­gions have led to the de­ci­sion,” said Gayn­dah Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice cap­tain Ron Mitchell. “We did ex­pect that a ban would be put in place with the way the weather has been. “Yes­ter­day af­ter­noon we re­sponded to a fire off the high­way near Ban Ban Springs.”

If res­i­dents are con­cerned their prop­erty is un­der threat they are ad­vised to call 000 im­me­di­ately.
