Fire in Tasmania's Wilderness World Heritage Area


Parks and Wildlife Service remote area fire crews are fighting a fire in buttongrass moorland on Packers Spur in the Adamsfield Conservation Area, part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

The fire, which is believed to have been started by lightning, has spread south and west over about 400 hectares and is currently located north of the Adamsfield Track.

Increased temperature and wind today has caused the fire to escalate and the fire has crossed the Adamsfield Track and is burning south through the Saw Back Range.

Public access to the Clear Hills Road and four wheel drive and walking tracks in the Adamsfield Conservation Area have been closed until further notice.
