Although we will be unable to assess the full impact caused by the fire until a post-bushfire assessment is carried out, we know that the fire has impacted a significant proportion of the Reserve on both sides of the Malborough Hwy.At present the fire at is burning at the towards the southern extent of the Reserve. A previous fire in this area may slow the fire’s progression southwards, however the fire continues to threaten the area to the west. The fire is currently not impacting the Skullbone Plains Reserve. TLC staff continue to remain on site and are contributing to the control effort. The TLC thanks all fire crew, the Tasmania Fire Service, and the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service for their efforts.
An active fire currently remains on Five Rivers Reserve.
