More than 190 firefighters are working to contain a bush fire burning 12 kilometres west of Sussex Inlet (south of Nowra). The fire has burnt over 8400 hectares. There is no immediate threat to properties.
Fire crews continued to consolidate containment lines, particularly in and around Jannung Lane, to provide protection to a number of properties in that area.
Residents and visitors may see an increase in smoke to the area due to backburning operations.
The current road conditions are:
- The Princes Highway is open, however it may be subject to closure at short notice.
- Sussex Inlet Road is open.
- Wandean Road is open to local traffic only.
- 12 Mile Peg (in the National Park) remains closed.
- Cassia Road is closed.
