worst conditions for a bush or grass fire. If a fire starts and takes hold it
will be extremely difficult to control and will take significant firefighting
resources and cooler conditions to bring under control.

- The Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) advises if a fire starts
and takes hold it will be unpredictable, move very fast and be difficult for
firefighters to bring under control.
