Advice level bushfire at Kempton

There is no immediate threat from a bushfire at Kempton but the Tasmania Fire Service says smoke will impact the Midland Highway.

Fire under these conditions can be difficult to control and the TFS has asked people in the area to keep up to date by listening to ABC Local Radio or look at the TFS website at www.fire.tas.gov.au

Well prepared homes are defendable in these conditions but if you are not prepared for a bushfire, think about leaving for a safe place if it gets more dangerous.
