Burn gets away

-

Rural Fire Service firefighte­rs were called to extinguish an escaped burn on the Riverina Highway on Sunday evening.

Mid Murray Zone Inspector Doug Adamson said the burn had taken place without a permit, and created a grassfire which burned up to 10 hectares.

The Deniliquin and Wandook RFS brigades responded about 6.20pm, and spent 90 minutes extinguish­ing the fire.

Insp Adamson said the permit period does not end until this Friday, meaning no burns should be taking place without necessary approvals.

He also reminded all landholder­s that all burns — whether in or out of the permit period — must be registered with the RFS at www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/notify 24 hours prior to burning.
