A Total Fire Ban has been declared for Thursday 29 November in the Wimmera and Mallee districts.

No fire can be lit in the open air from 00:01 hours on 29 November 2012 until 23:59 hours on 29 November 2012.

With temperatures expected to reach the 40s in some parts of the state tomorrow, CFA is warning the community, particularly farmers, about the extreme fire risk to the north-west parts of Victoria.

The combination of high temperatures and relatively low humidity means there’s a strong chance that if a fire starts, it could develop quickly.
