Planned burn at Mt Field today

WEATHER permitting, the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service will conduct a fuel reduction burn at the Mt Field National Park today and tomorrow (March 30-31).

The fire will be about 11ha in size and the aim is to provide protection for the visitor services zone the park. "While planned burns are aimed at being low-intensity, at times there will be significant smoke and flames, and ash may result," a spokesman said.
