Stathgordon fire downgraded

THE bushfire at Mt Cullen off Gordon River Rd has this week been downgraded to patrol status after several weeks at alert level. Suppression efforts over the last few weeks have ensured that this fire has remained within established containment lines.

Continued monitoring of boundaries including infrared surveys have not identified any fire activity. The area will continue to be patrolled until significant rainfall is received in the area. Intermittent rain has continued to fall on the fireground, assisting with the extinguishing of remaining hot spots within the fireground.

Operations are being co-ordinated to minimise the fire impact on natural and cultural values in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

Gordon River Rd remains closed at the Scotts Peak Rd junction, but assessments of dangerous trees and damage to infrastructure is being undertaken with the view of opening Gordon River Rd as soon as possible.
