A bushfire occurred early yesterday afternoon at Knapsack Reserve, approximately 8ha. All people; riders and pedestrians need to stay out of the burnt areas at Knapsack Reserve.

None of the burnt bushland areas have been assessed in regard to risk management issues; specifically burnt trees and burnt tree limbs - so do not enter any of the burned areas - for your own sake.

Some track closures have been put in place and are signposted. Burnt areas need to be left alone and not traversed. The DH remains open. No XC has been impacted.

Fire crews are patrolling the area as an active fire site both tonight and tomorrow to ensure the fire doesn't reignite
