Fed: Expert says commission needs to examine fuel reduction

A bushfire expert says the royal commission investigating the Victorian blazes should
examine the declining practice of fuel reduction in heavily-forested areas.

PHIL CHENEY .. the head of CSIRO's bushfires research unit .. says while temperatures
rising several degrees might increase the fire danger by up to two per cent .. doubling
the fuel load doubles the threat.

He's told ABC Television that fuel reduction practices have changed dramatically in
the past 30 years .. but if it's carried out around homes and in adjacent forests there's
an excellent chance of people staying and protecting themselves and their homes.
