The CFA's Declared Fire Danger Period began in the City of Whittlesea on Monday 9 December at 1am.

This means there are extra fire restrictions including that you cannot light a fire in the open air unless you have a permit or comply with certain requirements.

These restrictions are different to a Total Fire Ban Day which can be declared at any time throughout the year.

Learn more about what you can and can't do during the Fire Danger Period on the CFA's website.
