The Mt Nardi fire is currently under control with containment lines around the fire. While there have been flare ups Main Arm Rural Fire Service (RFS) captain Lance Hopson told Echonetdaily that it this is typical fire behaviour.
‘There are still patrols going out to monitor the fire and there are areas that are still burning,’ he said.
However, these areas that are burning are up high in the hills and are not an immediate threat to any people or properties.
High winds will tend to create further smoke activity and the future fire behaviour will depend on the weather conditions.
Burn for weeks
‘The fire is likely to burn for several weeks or until there is rain to put it out,’ said captain Hopson.
