Back burn takes light
17-OCT-2011 Alexander S. Howen

Back burn takes light

Wombeyan Caves, New South Wales

Much firefighting does not involve water. When a fire is progressing in a direction a well placed burn can stop the fire when it reaches the burnt area with no fuel. This is what is being done here. A number of brigades were called to this incident including Mittagong.
