Bonny Hills bushfire finally extinguished

File picThe Rural Fire Service declared thebushfire nearMcGilvray Road in Bonny Hills to be out on Monday morning.

“It’s pretty much done and dusted,” Inspector Guy Duckworth said.

The fire started on July 10, and burned through more than 600 hectares of scrub to the south of the Camden Haven town.

Crews from throughout the Hastings battled to contain the blaze for several days.

Containment lines were established on July 12, and it then fell to the Bonny Hills volunteers to check on the fire with twice daily patrols.

The smokey haze lingered over the area for more than a week, and was eventually cleared by the recent gusty conditions.

The weekend’s rain also helped end any remaining smoulder spots.

“That should keep everythingdamp around the coast for the rest of the week,” Inspector Duckworth said.

But he warned the dry conditions were expected to continue inland, and the danger period was only just beginning.

Residents planning to conduct hazard reduction burning should first contact their localFireControl Centre and check if afirepermit is required.
