Facts of fire - Part 2 Ember attack

In todays instalment of the Facts of Fire series we are covering ember attack.

Embers are often as hot as the fire which created them and remain after or precede a fire.

During a fire, embers can travel up to 40 kilometres, starting spot fires well ahead of the fire-front – often without warning cutting off planned exit pathways.

Tomorrow we will be sharing part 3 which covers spot fires.

Make sure you have the VicEmergency app on your smart devices so you can get early warning of fire activity in your area.

Remember indecision and confusion during a fire could be a killer and on high-risk fire days, leaving early before a fire starts, is always the safest option.
