Bushfires a massive threat as warmer season looms

Lots of fires are burning in Central Australia but the danger will
get much worse when the hot season starts, says the Bushfires NT's Grant

The fires are about on par with the last season of high rainfall, in
2001/02. Again the summer will be volatile and land holders are
encouraged to take immediate action to prepare, including undertaking
management burns when conditions are appropriate and low temperatures
still allow them to be done safely. ERWIN CHLANDA reports. 

Colour code for today's fire map, showing
about a million square kilometres: Blue – fires in the past 7 days; red
– 6 to 12 hours ago. Green and grey areas are "fire scars" from blazes
earlier this year. The arrows show the wind speed and the percentages
denote relative humidity. The readings are taken at TiTree, Kintore,
Uluru, Alice Springs, Jervois, Rabbit Flat and Lajamanu. Map courtesy
Bushfires NT. Up to date map here.
