Working Together we are Partners in Protection
So far this season we have had 4 wildfires in the area. One fire started this weekend is listed as under control. This Fire was detected April 20, 2014 at about 4:30 in the afternoon. Assistance from both the Wanham and EagleshamFD helped get this blaze under control. Sundays fire is under investigation but is believed to be human caused. Remember a permit is needed to do any burning within the forest protection area. Never leave a campfire before it is completely out. Campfire safety is particularly important at this time of year when gusty wind can spread fires to nearby grassy areas.
