Total fire ban declared across SA regions


Six fire districts have had total fire bans declared.


POTENTIALLY hazardous fire weather conditions have resulted in total fire bans declared for all today (Tuesday, November 14, across six districts.

Flinders, Mid North, Mount Lofty Ranges, Riverland, Murraylands and Lower South East have all been rated severe.

The total fire ban will apply for 24 hours from midnight this morning to midnight tonight.

The Country Fire Service has recommended residents to implement their bushfire survival plans.

Landholders are asked to adhere to harvest codes of practice and not carry out any burn-off activities.

A forecast fire danger rating of severe means well-prepared and actively defended houses can offer safety during a fire.

Those without a plan may consider leaving early before a fire starts as the safest option.

In making a plan, people should be aware that in high fire danger conditions, essential services including mains-fed electricity and water supply may not be available due to the prevailing weather conditions.
