Evening update on southwest fire

THE bushfire near Strathgordon continues to burn in rugged terrain within the Mt Cullen area in the Southwest National Park. The fire is not yet contained and is burning on both sides of the Gordon River Rd.

Remote Area fire crews from the Tasmania Fire Service and Parks and Wildlife Service, as well as 27 New South Wales firefighters and Forestry Tasmania personnel, supported by aerial water suppression, have been working to contain the fire and will continue their efforts over the coming days.

For safety reasons the Gordon River Rd is closed at Maydena and will remain closed until the fire is contained. Click here for updates on the fire and here for road closure updates.

A statewide Total Fire Ban remains in force until midnight this Tuesday.
