Mid-Murray Fire Warning

RFS are reminding residents of the fire risk in the extreme heat

The Rural Fire Service have reminded local residents of the fire risks in the extreme heat, following multiple fires late last week.

District Coordinator for the RFS Mid-Murray Zone, Doug Adamson, is reminding residents there is a no-burn period in the area over summer.

He also said there is no lighting fires without a permit, which are not given out at this time of year.

"No solid fuel fires allowed in Forests or National Parks on the New South Wales side of the River," Mr Adamson said.

"On Total Fire Ban Days also no fires in the open... It's just unsafe and unnecessary and we'd rather no-one lit a fire at all."

More information on Total Fire Bans and Fire Danger Ratings can be found on the NSW RFS website.
