Buxton CFA are on their way to Mill Creek Rd

Midnight: Buxton CFA crew to Mill Creek Rd


Buxton CFA volunteers are “burning the midnight oil” and on their way to a fire reported at Mill Creek Rd, “Murrindindi”.

“The brigade and crews from Forest Fire Management Victoria are currently investigating reports of a fire in the Mill Creek Road area along the Black Range,” said a Brigade spokesman.

“A potential fire, believed to be a tree, has been found at this time with heavy rain currently falling. There have been numerous lightning strikes in the ranges around the area. The fire location has been notified to FFMV who are investigating further.

“There is a high potential for fires to start overnight and any sightings should be reported to Emergency 000 to enable appropriate resources to be responded,” the Buxton CFA said in a Facebook post.
