Shoalhaven Rural Fire Service told residents via Facebook this afternoon the fire that started in Summercloud Bay more than a week ago is still burning.

The fire is burning slowly through remote, inaccessible bush and is well within containment lines.

There is still smoke visible in the area.

Wreck Bay Road and Summercloud Road remain closed to the public, however the majority of Booderee National Park is open to the public.

The RFS, Booderee National Park rangers and defence personnel will continue to patrol and monitor the fire activity for at least another week.
