When will the planned burn be carried out?
Ignition is planned for Friday 12th September, Saturday 13th September & Sunday 14th September 2014. DEPI and Parks Victoria can only carry out a burn when conditions such as weather and fuel moisture are suitable. The decision to proceed is made on the day of the burn, usually in the morning, following monitoring of weather conditions and local fuel moisture levels.
