Image Caption: This photo shows prescribed burn conducted 19 April 1994 in the Pilliga Nature Reserve, between the towns of Coonabarabran and Narrabri, New South Wales. According to the National Parks and Wildlife Service, the burn was conducted as part of a regular program of prescribed fires that have the objective of limiting the spread of summer wildfires. The final area burnt was 1900 hectares. The Pilliga Scrub is very fire prone, and has periodic fire events exceeding 100,000 hectares. The largest event was 350,000 hectares in 1951.
