Sand dune fire, Marram Grass burns in hot weather June 6th 2023
Huge sand dune fire on the Maharees.
Amazing response by locals, visitors and the fire brigade getting the fire under control.
How do fires start? Fires can start from discarded cigarettes or vapes and from the starting of camp / party fires.
Please respect the dunes. The Marram grass binds the sand and keeps our community safe from the effects of Sea level rise and storm surges.
