About Wednesday a series of fires started north of Glenreagh and west of Flaggy Creek Nature Reserve. By Friday the fire was over 400 ha and National Parks asked for RFS assistance. Five brigades including Halfway Creek 7 responded and began an asset protection burn to prevent the fire moving any further east. Weather conditions were favourable but access was difficult with some tracks requiring further clearing. Later in the day the wind became changeable and several spot overs required quick action by crews to prevent further spread. By 5 pm it was decided that the fire was sufficiently contained so it was left for tomorrows crews. The final photo shows the smoke flume as the storm changed the wind direction last Saturday afternoon, shortly after the Kungala area was blanketed by an acrid smelling smoke cloud dramatically reducing visibility.
