The Parks and Wildlife Service advises that fire management burns will be undertaken at the Peter Murrell Reserves at Kingston on Saturday 6 April. 

Two small burns will be conducted during the day and sections of the reserves will be closed to the public during the weekend. 

Entrance signs will indicate areas to be closed.  Smoke and ash may affect nearby properties and residents are advised to take the usual precautions to manage the impact of smoke and ash.
