Status Update #2 - Rutherford Area Fire

Posted on July 26, 2016

Rutherford Area Fire | Status Update #2
• The fire is now 25% contained.
• Coastal Fire Centre's approximation is that less than 10% of the "felled and bucked/slash" was burnt by this fire. 
• The fire did not get into any area of standing trees.
• The tactics of slowing the fire by the use of air tankers while crews were being deployed was very effective in protecting timber values at this fire site.
