A point one hectare forest fire is burning near Lions Bay that started around 5pm Monday evening.
Fire Information Officer Donna MacPherson says no trees are involved at this point.
“Anywhere where there is roads and access by people we are concerned about human caused fires but as I said, we’re not even sure at this point that this is human caused.”
A crew of three and an officer are on the scene for the night, and the fire department is providing support.
Crews are expected to work until dark but because of the steep and uneven ground will have to stop until morning if the fire isn’t contained.
