Update 3 - Girraween Fires

Fire and Rescue

Northern Territory Fire and Rescue Service will keep the fire advice for parts of Girraween in place overnight.

The areas include Rogers Road, Compigne Road, Kareela Drive, Power Road and Watling Road.

Most of the fires have been extinguished and NTFRS crews will continue to monitor the area.

Residents are asked to continue to monitor their properties and to notify NTFRS of any spot fires.

Fire District Officer Ian Lockley said it is a timely reminder for residents to put fire breaks in place.

“Fire breaks ensure your property and that of your neighbours is protected. They also allow for fire staff to easily access fires before they become unmanageable”

“I would like to acknowledge the excellent efforts of the NTFRS and Bushfires NT personnel in battling the fires. The hard work of ground crews and aerial assets ensured no major assets were lost.”
