Overstrand Fire Services will conduct a prescribed fuel reduction burn on Erf 644/25 in Stanford on Wednesday, 13 September 2023.
These 11.4 ha form part of the new housing project next to Stanford Country Fair.
The main objective of the prescribed burn is to reduce fire fuel loads. Controlled burns are the most practical way to reduce dangerous accumulation of combustible fuels. Veld fires that burn in areas where fuels have been reduced by prescribed fires, cause less damage and are much easier to control.
Burn operations are scheduled for the whole day, whereafter mop-up operations will continue as required.
