The Tasmania Fire Service reports that the fire has now been contained, thanks the the efforts of nine ground-based vehicles and several helicopters which have been dumping water from the adjacent River Derwent onto the fire.
TFS crews will continue working in the area until it is safe. There may be visible smoke and fire activity within the burnt area for some time. Updates may be available at www.fire.tas.gov.au.
