Volunteers from the Dimboola Urban Fire Brigade are planning a fuel reduction burn at the railway yards this Friday, weather permitting.

The burn will take place at the railway yards and along the railway line near Upper Region Street. Residents in and around the area might see smoke from 4pm as crews carry out the fuel reduction burn that runs through the township.

The community is also reminded that the fire danger period remains in force and that no fire can be lit in the open air without a permit.

Don’t forget to close your windows and make sure your washing is off the line on Friday if you live in the area.
