Well today the Cambridge IMT closed for business after all crews were cleard from the fireground and had returned home.
The Wayatinah Fire has been contained for nearly a week and with some rain falling in the area overnight (and expected agian during the weekend) this should pretty much douse any remaining fire in the area. Although the IMT has closed this does not mean that the fire has been abandoned! as the assets that were under threat belonged to multiple agencies they now take on the roving patrols of the area to ensure that there is no recurrence.
During this time I have got to meet some really nice people from the Tasmanian Fire Service, Forestry Tasmania and Parks & Wildlife… So the next time we meet, lets hope its not for the same reason… 😉
