advice message for little mt buller fire 18 January 2019 11:38am 

Please note this advice message replaces the Watch and Act issued last night.

There is currently no threat to you, but you should stay informed and monitor conditions.

Firefighting operations including night-time water bombing activities and the current weather conditions have eased the fire activity. Crews and aircraft are monitoring the situation.

Please note that the Victorian Downhill Mountain Bike Series event on the 19-20 January 2019, will be going ahead as planned.

As we are expecting an increase in aerial activity over the week, there will to be NO drone operations during that time.  


What you should do: 

  • Monitor warnings so you can act quickly if the situation changes.
  • Monitor changes, including increased wind speed, change in wind direction, smoke or poor visibility that indicate the situation is changing. 
  • Keep the roads clear so emergency services can respond. 
  • If you have time, check your neighbours to see if they are monitoring conditions.

Impacts in your area: 

  • Firefighters and aircraft will remain in the area. 

This message was issued by Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning.


The next update is tomorrow or as the situation changes.

If you can smell smoke, please note: 

  • Smoke can affect people's health.
  • People with heart or lung conditions (including asthma), children, pregnant women and older people are more sensitive to the effects of breathing in smoke.
