MODERATE Fire Danger Level:

IGNITION: Fires can start from most accidental causes, but with the exception of lightning fires in some areas, the number of starts is generally low.

SPREAD: Fires in open cured grasslands will burn briskly and spread rapidly on windy days. Timber fires spread slowly to moderately fast. The average fire is of moderate intensity, although heavy concentrations of fuel, especially draped fuel, may burn hot.

SPOTTING: Short-distance spotting may occur, but is not persistent.

CONTROL: Fires are not likely to become serious and control is relatively easy.
