The Hume Region planned burning program will continue this week with planned burns scheduled for ignition, subject to suitable conditions. 

Planned burns are scheduled in and around the following locations. 

  • Upper Murray District - Fuel reduction burns may occur near Corryong, Mitta Mitta and Tallangatta 
  • Ovens District - Fuel reduction burns near Baranduda, Beechworth, Bright, and Mount Beauty.
  • Murrindindi District - Fuel reduction burn near Big River and timber harvesting regeneration burns near Alexandra, Marysville and Toolangi.

Autumn is a critical time to conduct this important work when weather conditions are mild and stable. We work closely with the Bureau of Meteorology to assess weather conditions such as humidity, temperature and wind speed and will only carry out burns when conditions are suitable.
