Bushfires get early jump on season

AFTER an abrupt start to the bushfire season on Saturday, hundreds of fire personnel took advantage of a break in the windy conditions on Sunday.

With temperatures in the 30s and strong winds expected over the new few days, the Tasmania Fire Service are preparing for what is shaping up to be a busy week.

Crews were kept busy throughout Sunday with bushfires burning at Orford, Osterley and Glenfern.

The Tasmania Fire Service is now attempting to organise a taskforce from the North-West to assist Southern crews during the first half of the week.

Acting deputy regional chief Mark Klop said that the main concern for crews was the fire at Orford which was first reported at midday on Saturday.

“The biggest one that we’re keeping an eye on at the moment is the Brockley Road fire at Orford, where the fire is located it may have an impact on the highway,” Mr Klop said.

“With the reduction of the wind, we’ve been able to utilise helicopters in areas we weren’t able to utilise [on Saturday] and also we’ve been able to get fire crews in.

Mr Klop said that by Tuesday, severe fire conditions would have taken effect in the state.

“There are very high fire danger ratings on Tuesday and similar wind conditions to Saturday,” he said.

“Some of the fires do have potential to increase in size over the next 24 hours.”

He said people should not carry out any personal burn-offs until Wednesday.

Mr Klop said that unless Tasmania saw some late spring rain, the state could expect to see a drier than average summer.
