CFS warns of impending fire danger
It is claimed in South Australia that the first days of spring have brought with them seasonal conditions frighteningly similar to those that led to the devastating Ash Wednesday bushfires of 1983.
Adam Thompson from the South Australian Country Fire Service (CFS) says the CFS is seriously considering bringing the fire danger season forward after several fires across the state.
"The warning signs are there now. When you start to have these significant fires burning so early in spring, come summer time there will be severe fire weather," he said.
"Unless there is a dramatic change in weather now, we should be bracing ourselves across the state for a particularly dangerous summer."
