Upcoming prescribed burns

Find out when and where the Department for Environment and Water prescribed burns are happening.


Burn off - an intentionally ignited fire by a member of the public for the reduction of vegetation and or stubble as part of farming practices. Individuals conducting a Burn off need the appropriate local council permits.

Prescribed burn - an intentionally ignited fire contained within a designed area. Prescribe burns will be conducted by Department for Environment and Water (DEW), ForestrySA, SA Country Fire Service (CFS) and the Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS). Generally Prescribed burns are conducted during the cooler months to reduce fuel build-up and decrease the likelihood of serious hotter fires.
