A number of fires were ignited in Tasmanian parks and reserves as a result of lightning strikes on January 13.

A list of all fires burning in the State is available on the Tasmania Fire Service website.

Please note: The Mt Castor Fire is burning in the Southwest National Park. It is currently about four kilometres west of Federation Peak. As a result walking tracks in the Eastern Arthurs have been closed until further notice.
