Zero Tolerance To Illegal Burnoffs

Authorities have announced a tough stand against people burning off in the Fire Danger Period.

On Dec 26, fire restrictions came into force which means no burning off without a permit.

The tough stand is aimed at reducing the risk of fire in the area with high grass fuels across the State increasing the risk of fast running grass fires.

Lt Peter Harry says landowners need to be aware of the law and warns that Police will deal with offenders.

“Each year CFA spends a lot of time attending to illegal burnoffs which puts the community at risk”.
