Sunday 27th January at 1000hrs. Monaro Rural Fire Brigade members are once again out working in remote areas to extinguish 2 fires that were started by lightning yesterday evening. A fire in the Good Good (Peak View) area is contained at approx. 2 hectares. Crews from Peak View, Jerangle & Bredbo brigades, together with members of the Monaro Remote Area Firefighting Team (RAFT) and a bulldozer are currently working on breaking up, extinguishing and blacking out the hot area within the containment lines. The dozer has also assisted in being able to get RFS appliances to the actual fire. These crews will continue to work throughout the day. A fire at Mt Tamanang (Anembo) area, in the Tallaganda National Park is also contained at approx. 1 hectare. Crews from the Anembo brigade are working on breaking up, extinguishing and blacking out this fire, ahead of the arrival of National Parks and Wildlife crews, who are due on the fireground later this morning, allowing the Anembo crews to stand down. The Monaro & Snowy Mountains area is currently experiencing a significant amount of smoke drift, which has come in over the early hours of this morning with a southerly wind change. This smoke is coming from fires well into Victoria, and residents and visitors to the area can rest assured that it is smoke only, and there are no fires currently in the area posing any threat. Below is a photo of the Good Good fire, supplied by Peak View brigade member, James Fitzgerald, taken yesterday evening whilst the brigade was in the process of obtaining access to the fire. ...

You know it’s a decent plume/fire, when you can see it all day on the BOM Radar. Worked reloading B137 yesterday they said they’ve had some interesting drops there. Hope it holds.
The fire is on the western side of the Tooma reservoir listed in Fires Near me as Possum point fire.
