Due to easing fire weather conditions in some areas of the Riveaux Road bushfire, Tasmania Fire Service has reviewed their warnings and some emergency warnings in the Huon Valley have been downgraded.
Road block at Huonville on the Huon Hwy:
The road block at Huonville remains in place, however, consideration will be given to residents wanting to access their properties:
- If you do not live in the Huon Valley area, stay away, you will not be given access.
- If you live in an area still under Emergency Warnings, stay away.
- If you live in the areas where current alerts are at Watch and Act or Advice, you may return home, however conditions can change quickly. It is important you stay up to date with current fire information through the TFS website or the local ABC radio.
All other road closures will remain in place, access to these areas is strictly prohibited as the areas are to danger to enter. Entering these closed areas puts yourself and the safety of emergency service personnel at risk.
