Victoria’s Country Fire Association (CFA) has suspended hazard reduction burns over coronavirus concerns.

The Herald Sun is reporting the CFA will not conduct planned burns on private properties and have pushed the responsibility onto residents to prepare their own homes.

The move has prompted fears the postponement will leave the state vulnerable to bushfires as the season commences later in the year.
