Mt Carmel slopes the target of hazard reduction burn

The Boonah Group of Rural fires brigades ranging from Mt Alford, Tarome, Kalbar, Roadvale to Allandale, lit up the fuel loaded slopes of Mt Carmel on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Bridge Road side of the hill was lit as was the Boonah Fassifern Road side.

The burn went well according to the rural firies with the fire quickly engulfing the dried grass and underbrush on the slopes but burning out when it hit the green grass on the road reserves at the base and at the top of the hill.
