The Southeast Fire Centre says it is never too early to think about responsible burning.
Fire Information Officer Karlie Shaughnessy says as the snow melts and last summer’s grass dries up from warmer temperatures it can result in highly flammable material.
Shaughnessy adds last year the Southeast district saw 204 fires, which burned 560 hectares in total.
That is well below the 10 year average.
