Increased smoke from control burns

Over the weekend the NSW Rural Fire Service, with assistance from Fire and Rescue NSW and NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service conducted two hazard reduction burns across the Mid Lachlan Valley.

The first burn took place in an area located east of Grenfell along Major West Road Bumbaldry and the second near Saleyards Road Parkes.

The NSW Rural Fire Service Mid Lachlan Valley Team said the burns will help to reduce the risk to properties within the surrounding areas.

The team has issued a thank you to a number of brigades across the Mid Lachlan Valley including Brundah, Forbes Central, Greenethorpe, Parkes Headquarters and Weddin Headquarters who gave up some of their weekend to assist in completing these hazard reduction burns
