The Riverina Highlands RFS will be hosting an information session at the Gilmore Fire Shed, Batlow Road, today (Monday January, 20) at 5pm.

The session is designed to provide residents and property owners with up to date information regarding the conditions surrounding the Sturgess fire on the western side of Blowering Dam that is burning along the Snubba Range.

Currently the Snubba blaze is the focus of fire fighting efforts with the fire front burning both to the south and the north.

There are pockets of the fire that are burning in an out of control manner. Benign weather conditions are allowing fire crews to aggressively attack the fire with back burning exercises underway and containment lines being strengthened.

All residents from the Gilmore and surrounding areas are encouraged to attend the meeting.
