Bushfire Update – “Kerrie Collerys Lane” fire: Monday 6.00am

CFA and DSE crews will work throughout the day today to strengthen control lines around the Kerrie Collerys Lane fire burning near Kerrie and Romsey. CFA firefighters from Riddells Creek have been in attendance at the 60 hectare bushfire since it began late on Saturday afternoon and continue to provide assistance for both day and night shift deployments.

Yesterdays windy weather saw fire behaviour intensify within the perimeter of the fire and a spot fire near Kerrie Valley Road and Shannons Lane burned up to 8 hectares before being controlled. As a result of this spot fire, CFA issued a Watch and Act warning to residents in this area late yesterday afternoon.
