UPDATE: NSW RFS has urged property owners to check weather conditions before undertaking pile burns, after experiencing a busy day on Tuesday.
Shoalhaven RFS District Officer Bradley Collins said a number of pile burns had got away from residents in windy weather on August 7.
“Could we please ask all land owners wishing to undertake pile burning to please check the weather conditions before burning,” he said.
“Please note the conditions are currently very dry and residents also need to take this into consideration.”
Mr Collins said the fire on Bawley Point Road, which started shortly after 2pm was being contained by the use of the land owner’s dozer.
“There is no threat to property at this stage,” he said.
Crews were still on scene at the Monkey Mountain Road fire, which was also not threatening property as of 4pm Tuesday.
“Crews are on scene working to contain the fire, we have deployed our bulk water carrier to assist with operations,” he said.
“There is no threat to property at this stage and the cause is unknown.”
EARLIER: Firefighters are on the scene of three separate fires at Termeil.
The first call came in at 11am on August 7 with reports of a bush fire in Meroo National Park, to which National Parks and Wildlife personnel responded.
Rural Fire Service (RFS) volunteers were later called to a bush fire on Bawley Point Road shortly after 2pm. Just 20 minutes later, RFS crews were called to Monkey Mountain Road to another bush fire.
It is unclear how big the fires are, however RFS crews are on scene at both.
“Operations are still ongoing, but there is no threat to property at this stage,” an RFS spokesman said.
Wind gusts blowing in a westerly direction were reaching 40 km/h at Termeil at 2pm on Tuesday.
More information as it comes to hand.
