Redland City Council will start a hazard reduction burn at Redlands IndigiScapes Centre, Runnymede Road, Capalaba at about 10.30 this morning. Burning is expected to take a couple of hours, with mop-up activities continuing throughout the afternoon until the fire is extinguished.
The burn will take place in a two hectare section of bushland with publicly accessible tracks, which will be closed off for the duration. Nearby residents have been advised by letter box drop.
Winds are forecast to blow from the south and west this morning, so smoke may affect areas to the north and east of the burn site.
All attempts will be made to limit any smoke hazards from the work. Stay safe during smoky conditions by following these tips from Queensland Health.
This planned burn is necessary to reduce the volume of forest litter fuel – which will assist with hazard reduction – and provide conditions essential for native regeneration.
If you require further details of the planned burn, please contact Council on 3829 8999.
