A controlled burn was carried out by DEWNR (dept of environment, water and natural resources) on approx. 7 hectares of our property on Nov 22nd.
They arrived around 12.30 pm and first ignition occurred around 4.30pm.
35 people, 6 trucks including 2 large tankers, and 6 four-wheel drive vehicles were involved.
They worked until around 9.00 pm with one truck and crew remaining overnight.
A follow-up crew kept an eye on things in the days following.
Click on the thumbnail to the right to see some snaps of the proceedings. I wasn't allowed to get too close for obvious reasons, but eventually, they came to us ! (also, one not very good video, first time I've used my dslr's video function....... it shows!)
Thanks to DEWNR for their fire program and resources, and in particular to Tim Groves and his excellent team for a safe and successful operation.
