RURAL Fire Service crews from Huskisson, St Georges Basin Brigade, Basin View and Cross Roads brigades successfully completed a hazard reduction burn at Berry Street Huskisson on Tuesday, September 8.
The five hectare burn provides an additional bushfire fuel reduced buffer to more than 100 properties.
The area adjoining the National Park at Moona Creek will have some heavier fuels smouldering and potentially burning within the identified containment lines for some days yet, even with the recent light drizzle.

Walkers and bike riders should avoid the area for a few days to allow the area to settle and you should not walk through the burnt areas as the ground may still be hot and fire affected trees/ branches can fall without warning.
Hazard reductions like these also provide some additional training for new members of brigades.
