Force of nature: Up close with the RFS | PHOTOS, VIDEO

An African lovegrass hazard reduction burn near Candelo on Tuesday night was a spectacular sight.

It was one of the largest operations for the year, involving about 15 trucks and 40 volunteers from brigades including Jellat, Candelo, Buckajo, Wolumla, Merimbula, Burragate, Rocky Hall, Wyndham and Numbugga.

The various brigades began the 40ha burn just on sunset and didn’t get finished until around 10pm.
