The smoke will neutralise the dust at the Canberra Show. Excellent planning and co-ordination. The forecast 31 degrees will get the fire moving along.
Does “hazard reduction” mean they are going to take out some cyclists as well?

Should that be 12pm, as in lunchtime? Can’t imagine them getting out there at midnight and doing it.
