How June’s wild weather could cause chaos this fire season
A volunteer firefighter in the Dandenong Ranges says she’s “nervous” about the upcoming fire season, saying there is still plenty of dangerous debris in the area following wild storms in June.
Sarah Brown told Neil Mitchell not enough had been done to clean-up the damage.
She said there was still a “large volume” of debris around, with broken tree branches and dangerous fire fuel littered everywhere.
She said access to many streets and backroads also remained a problem.
“There are a lot of streets you wouldn’t even take a car down, let alone a fire truck,” she said.
