Additional crews and aircraft have been deployed to assist with a bushfire at Surf Beach after strong winds reignited the blaze on Monday afternoon.
The Rural Fire Service said strong winds had flared up the fire burning near Wimbie Street, Surf Beach, at around lunch time on January 23.
Far South Coast RFS manager John Cullen said the terrain and unfavourable weather conditions made access difficult.
“We’re having some difficulty in that area as it is difficult country to deal with,” Mr Cullen said.
“We’re getting extra resources in as far as a dozer and helicopter.
“We’re looking at doing some backburning and getting a hard dozer line around it.”
RFS crews from Malua Bay, Surf Beach, Broulee, and South Durras were assisting with the blaze, Mr Cullen said.
Road users near George Bass Drive have been advised to be on alert.
“We’re advising road users to be careful under the present weather conditions as there will be smoke coming back towards the road,” Mr Cullen said.
The fire poses no threat to any properties at this stage.
