CFA has received a number of calls from community members regarding bonfires to mark the ‘Spark in the Dark’ event this evening.
We appreciate those who are thanking our frontline workers, but urge you to keep fire safety front of mind.
As today’s conditions are windy in some areas we are urging those who wish to participate to not do so by lighting bonfires or using fire pits.
If you are choosing to light a candle, please ensure it is monitored by an adult and extinguished properly.
You might like to mark the event by using a torch or outside light.
Thank you and stay safe.
