Forest Fire Management Victoria (FFMVic) and Country Fire Authority (CFA) advise that the Little Desert NP - East Block North Break - East planned burn, located at 4km S of Dimboola is now in progress.

Planned burning crews are currently lighting this burn - flames and smoke may be visible. This process will take a few hours for small burns and grassland burns. Larger burns, and burns in forested areas, may take a day or multiple days to ignite.

Crews are patrolling the burn as it spreads inside the control lines.

The burn may produce embers that cause short distance spotting and crews are checking for these.

Note that some burns are carried out in stages, with part of the burn completed, and crews returning later to carry out further work within the burn area. If so, you will receive notifications when the burn is once again scheduled to be carried out.
