The TFS urges people to remain informed as there are areas of fire that continue to burn and conditions can change. Any fire activity causing concern should be reported by calling triple zero (000).
Scotts Peak Rd is open, including access to the Huon and Edgar campgrounds. Campfires have been banned until further notice in the South-West National Park due to the current fire situation (gas stoves are permitted). All walking tracks departing from Scotts Peak Rd remain closed.
Emergency service vehicles and personal will be in the area for several weeks to come. Deployed today were three helicopters, 17 remote area firefighters (Tasmanian, interstate and New Zealand crews) and three Forestry Tasmania and Parks and Wildlife water carriers.
