Grass Fires in Dumfries & Galloway

For confirmation of the high fire risk at present, see the photos of the fire on the south-west slopes of Dumfries' local 'mountain', Criffel.  The report is of grass fires and I hope it has been possible to control the fire before it got into the rank heather on the higher slopes.

This fire has occurred in an area where we have had seemingly non-stop rain since the middle of last year.  Other drier, areas be warned.
