After nearly a month the @nswrfs has declared the #SirIvanFire as extinguished. The Sir Ivan fire burnt more than 55,000 hectares of land during the worst fire weather conditions ever recorded in NSW.
The fire occurred during a prolonged and record-breaking heatwave event, with temperatures in many areas reaching the low to mid 40s for many days.
In the week of Monday 6 February, forecasts from the Bureau of Meteorology pointed to a significant worsening of fire weather conditions, mainly due to strong north-westerly winds and lower humidity levels.
On Friday 10 February, with Catastrophic fire danger forecast for the following days, a statewide total fire ban was declared for the weekend.
On Saturday 11 February, Severe fire danger was experienced in four areas across NSW. Weather forecasts for the following day confirmed Catastrophic fire danger ratings for the Greater Hunter, Central Ranges and North Western areas.
The Sir Ivan fire was first identified at lunchtime on Saturday 11 February, following a call to Triple Zero.
With the forecast of worsening fire conditions, a significant effort was launched to contain and slow the fire using local and out-of-area resources, supported by aircraft and heavy plant.
On the Sunday, the fire burnt aggressively and quickly under Catastrophic fire weather conditions and heavily impacted on properties, particularly farms.
The fire also destroyed approximately 2000 sheep, 56 cattle, 90 goats, 26 dogs and cats, 36 poultry. It is estimated 5,700 kilometres of fencing was impacted.
Fire investigators have confirmed the fire started as a result of a lightning strike sometime before 11 February.
