There is a bushfire near Bright that started yesterday from an escaped camp-fire.
DSE reckon they will let it burn itself out behind lines created to contain the recent 'Beechworth' fire, due the country it is in is too rugged to put firefighters into.
Other fuel reduction burns are planned by DSE to start next weekend.
The country is still tinder dry, even if the weather is cooler.
Park is open but visibility is low due smoke ...
