The CFA and Forest Fire Management Victoria will burn two areas in the Walmer State Forest, one around 3 km north-west of Castlemaine and the other at Castlemaine-Barkers Creek.

The burns will be carried out between 10am and 8pm today weather permitting while they should be fully completed by Friday.
