A Controlled Burn off is an intentionally ignited fire contained within a designated area. They are generally conducted during the cooler months to reduce fuel build-up and decrease the likelihood of serious hotter fires or reduction of stubble as part of  farming practices.  Controlled Burn Offs may be carried out by individuals with appropriate local council permits, Forestry SA, DEWNR, Natural Resource Management Boards and CFS.

There may be Controlled Burn Offs of which CFS is unaware.  Please call the Bushfire Information Hotline on 1300 362 361 for more information. If at any time you see an unattended fire, please report it by dialling 000.
