Rural Fire Service firefighters responded to a bushfire which threatened the outskirts of Wooli on the afternoon of Friday, 26th of February, 2016
IT’S the time of year when everything in the Clarence Valley should be green and lush, but “exceptionally dry” conditions have turned bushland into tinderbox.
A BUSHFIRE near Nymboida and a hazard reduction burn near Wooli are contributing to smoky skies to the south and east of Grafton.
“The weather has got dry again since the beginning of February, which is quite unusual for here, as it’s normally the start of our wet period.”
UPDATE, 1.45pm MONDAY: NATIONAL Parks and Wildlife Service fire crews will continue to patrol the remnants of the Wooli fire for the next few days.
