The Burn

Time is of the essence when scheduling a large burn.  With a deadline of 31 October 2015, it was all hands on deck to achieve an essential ingredient to the overall preparation plan.

Of course, one does not just flick a match into long, dry grass a week before a fire ban! It was a challenge setting up this burn for many reasons but with a professional approach taken, it went without a hitch and we all breathed a sigh of relief.

Justin and a small army of locals and fire experts ensured the containment of the fire, along with well-executed firebreaks within the property’s boundaries.

The lighting of the fire was delayed due to wind speed and direction, so it wasn’t until late in the afternoon that the first torch hit the fields with the fire burning into the night.
