Forest Fire Management Victoria will be undertaking a planned burn at the Lochiel Rest Stop, north-west of Dimboola commencing tomorrow.

This will occur over the next week and cover an area of around eight hectares along the Wimmera River.

The objective is to develop fuel reduced areas of sufficient width and continuity to reduce the speed and intensity of bushfires.

During this time smoke may be visible from the rest stop and along the adjacent highway.
