The Terraborra North fire continues to burn in remote and rugged bushland 8km West of St Albans and is approximately 4,500 hectares in size. There is currently no threat to property.
Yesterday, ground crews and aircraft monitored and patrolled the fireground, monitoring and eliminating hot spots.
Late yesterday afternoon, conditions enabled further aerial ignition runs were completed. This greatly reduces the risk of fire activity increasing and posing a threat to communities in coming days.
Over night, ground crews continued to monitor the progress of the fire as well as worked to eliminate any existing hotspots.
A southerly change is expected today. Residents and visitors north of the fire may experience smoke drift as the fire continues to burn within containment lines. NSW RFS and National Parks and Wildlife Service firefighters and aircraft will continue to monitor and patrol the fireground over coming days.
This will be the last Community Newsletter to be issued unless the situation changes.
