Yesterday’s fire beside the Federal Highway near Lake George is now under control and inside containment lines.
One northbound lane of the highway is closed and will probably remain so at least for the rest of today. There is burning timber just beside the road and some possibility of rocks falling.
The rough terrain in the area is making it difficult for firefighters to reacht he core fo the fire and it may not be completely blacked out for a couple of days.
Fresh crews went in this morning and at 7.30am there were 8 units plus crews working on the fire.
