Canberra firefighters helping with Queensland blaze

Share Canberra's trusted news:


THIRTY-four people from the ACT Rural Fire Service (ACTRFS) will head to Queensland tomorrow (November 29) to help fight the major bushfires. 

The ACTRFS deployment is expected to be on the ground on Friday morning through to Sunday evening. 

Fire conditions in the ACT are forecast to be mild until at least next week and ACT ESA says this deployment will not impact the level of fire protection in Canberra and the surrounding regions.
