Fire Danger Rating for Tuesday the 23rd of January is VERY HIGH

ALL PERMITS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED

these temperatures are likely to continue for the rest of the week, with some easing of fire danger thanks to slightly elevated relative humidity.
There is the chance of dry lightening over the next few days that could cause new fire ignitions.
If you see a fire without a fire truck please call 000 immediately.

A quick response from NPWS RAFT Dalgety and Jindabyne brigades have contained a lightning strike on Guises Range today.
The fire was in very isolated and steep country, NPWS and RFS RAFT crews held the fire until a track could be established allowing trucks and crews to get water on the fire.

Air Attack Supervisor Ian Jauncey is currently airborne west of Bombala.
Flying in spotter 268, Ian is surveying the area that was impacted by lightening last night that came with little rain.
These flights are a fantastic resource for identifying new ignitions in remote areas before they become large fires.
If Ian identifies a fire he will radio the location to the Duty Officer who will dispatch the local brigade and additional resources as required.
Thanks for giving up your Sunday afternoon Ian, great work.

Air Attack Supervisor Peter Davis has been working at the Long Gully Road fire for the past day. He is providing incredibly important information back to the IMT and fire fighters on the ground that assists in developing ground unit and aviation suppression plans.

Inspector Rein Peet is on his way to the Long Gully Rd fire now to take a position in the IMT as a Rural Liaison Officer.

We wish them both the best and look forward to getting them back in a couple days.
