A bushfire in Wirrabara Forest continues to burn freely affecting the Heysen Trail. Yesterday’s Emergency Bushfire Warning (a risk to life and property) has been downgraded to a Watch & Act message. The fire is affecting areas of the Heysen Trail in the vicinity of the maps 5 and 6 in chapter 2 of the Northern Guidebook. Walkers are reminded to avoid the area until the CFS gives the all-clear.
The fire began when a burn-off jumped containment lines on Monday afternoon, fire crews are hoping for calm conditions to bring the fire under control.
