Total fire ban for Saturday in Tasmania as crews battle blazes amid deteriorating conditions


Collinsvale 7012

The Tasmania Fire Service (TFS) is working against the clock to try and contain bushfires burning around the state ahead of predicted hot weather this weekend.

Key Points:

  • Five fires around Fingal in north-east Tasmania are burning at watch and act level
  • Fire authorities fear the blazes could spread to the Douglas-Apsley National Park
  • Crews are working against the clock to try and contain the fires ahead of deteriorating conditions

The TFS has issued a total fire ban for southern and northern municipalities for 24 hours from 2AM on Saturday 4th January, while permits are required on the north-west coast.

The main cause of concern is the 7,000-hectare fire at Fingal in the state’s north-east, which has five watch and act alerts in place. Police believe it was started by arsonists on Monday.

The TFS has 10 aircraft ready to respond if the bushfire crosses into the Douglas-Apsley National Park today.

The blaze became very active late yesterday on Mangana Road, with ash and embers dropping on the southern side of the town.

Thick plumes of smoke also settled over the town, prompting a warning for residents with medical conditions to stay indoors.

One residential home and a car have been destroyed around the Tower Hill area along with many outbuildings, said acting regional fire chief, Ian Bounds.

“We have confirmed a loss of a residential house and vehicle around the Tower Hill area, and our investigators are going in to check that today,” he said.

“We believe that was lost when the fire took a run and the embers entered that property and we lost that property.”

A full assessment of property losses is being undertaken today.

A number of back-burning operations will be undertaken around the fire today, Mr Bounds said.

“The fire south of Fingal remains of major concern, crews are working right through the evening and this morning crews will be concentrating on securing that fire ahead of Saturday’s conditions,” he said.

“It certainly is going to challenge containment lines and we are looking at a total fire ban for some areas tomorrow.”

A bushfire that reached emergency level yesterday at Glenlusk, north of Hobart, is being heavily resourced to ensure it does not break containment lines.

The cause of the fire that threatened homes is being investigated today.

Rain has helped fire fighting efforts at Pearce Basin, north of Strathgordon in the south-west.

There are a total of nine fires in the area burning in rugged terrain.

Mr Bounds said there would be a very high fire danger especially through the Midlands, Fingal Valley and East Coast on Saturday with temperatures soaring in the 30s.

People who plan on travelling to the East Coast are being warned to drive to the conditions and to be aware of increased presence of fire crews in the area.
