Halfway Creek was asked to assist Lanitza/Kungala with a couple of HRs (hazard reduction) burns in Omega Drive. The burns included several small and one large pile burn, in general it is preferred that any piles should be much smaller than the one shown above. The residence shown could have been a problem but as the owner had slashed around it we were able to burn back from it quite safely. Parts of the burn were pretty hot due mainly to sections of tall dry blady grass which when dry burns aggressively and is often a problem. The last part of the burn was not completed due to changing wind conditions and time getting away.
Halfway Creek 7 assisted Lanitza/Kungala crews to complete the last section of this HR on the following Saturday morning.
