FIREFIGHTERS are continuing to mop up a forest fire burning in the ACT's south.The fire is burning close to Mount Ginini in the western region of Namadgi National Park and is under control.
The ACT Rural Fire Service has four units on the scene to fight the 26ha forest fire.
Meanwhile, a helicopter reconnaissance flight will monitor whether there is any fire still burning at Sentry Box and Rendezvous Creek within Namadgi National Park.
A cluster of small fires at Rendezvous Creek was extinguished after the site was water bombed yesterday.
The chopper will use infrared detection equipment to pick up the presence of any hot spots in the areas.
The bushfires were sparked by lightning when a storm hit the capital on Saturday evening.

A total fire ban has been declared for today in the ACT, with fire danger rated at extreme due to forecast very hot and windy weather.
