THE NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) has warned of the heightened potential for grass fires in the Michelago, Colinton and Bredbo areas due to African Lovegrass.

Fire Mitigation Officer, Monaro Team, Fred Nichols said the amount of African Lovegrass has increased significantly because of summer rainfall and lower stock numbers as a result of the drought.
