  • The prescribed burns will commence at 12 am and are likely to be completed by 6 pm on Wednesday 21 October.
  • The area to be burnt is 7 hectares along the northern boundary of the Mount Bold Reservoir Reserve adjacent to Lamont Road approximately 500 metres southeast of Bradbury.
  • The burn aims to reduce fuel hazard in the area in order to reduce the bushfire risk to houses along Lamont Road and the township of Bradbury.
