Currently there are 3 fires -

There is a Total Fire Ban in force in Victoria's North Western region.

Fire danger is expected to be extreme in the Mallee, Wimmera, Northern Country, North Central, West and South Gippsland weather districts.
CFA has advised people living in areas at risk of fire to activate their bush fire plan.

The weather forecast for all Victorian regional towns can be found HERE.


  1. I hate it when the bush fires begin, it reminds me of when I was little and the Ash Wednesday fires occured. My family lived up in woodend and kyneton and malmsbury, it was a very sad black time.

  2. Ash Wednesday was beyond description, Cazzie. The Spouse was in Cockatoo at that time and still doesn't like talking about it.
    Let's all hope this is a very quiet season.
