Community advice about Strathgordon bushfire

A COMMUNITY information session about the southwest bushfire will be held at Maydena late tomorrow morning (Saturday).
For safety reasons the Gordon River Rd is closed at Maydena and will remain closed until the fire is contained.
The fire is burning in the Mt Cullen area in the southwest. The fire is not yet contained and is burning on both sides of the Gordon River Rd.
Fire crews will be working over the coming days to contain the fire. If people are planning to visit the area in the coming days they should change their plans and not visit the area.
To find out more about the current bushfire situation in the Lake Pedder, Strathgordon area, residents and travelers are encouraged to attend the community information session.
When: Saturday 23 January 2016
