THE Country Fire Service fears a fire burning in a large woodchip pile on Kangaroo Island could spread in today's hot weather.
A community meeting will be held at 9am today to provide details of the fire, which has been burning at Timber Creek Mill, about 7km east of Parndana, since about 11.30pm on Saturday.
CFS regional officer Brenton Hastie said hot and windy conditions today could place properties under threat.
He said the CFS is particularly concerned about three properties - Parn Lee, Karmar and Dehra-Dun.
"Winds will turn north-westerly and could potentially result in several properties coming under threat from thick smoke and embers," Mr Hastie said.
CFS resources from Adelaide have joined the firefighting efforts and there are about 40 firefighters at the scene who are also using foam to suppress the fire.
This morning's community meeting will be held at Timber Creek Lodge at The Settlement, off Timber Creek Rd.
"I encourage everyone in the area to attend this meeting where information about the status of this fire will be updated including any risk to nearby properties," Mr Hastie said.
Meanwhile, firefighters will continue monitoring two blazes that have burned through hundreds of hectares in the South East as the state prepares for a severe fire danger day.
Country Fire Service crews have contained the fires at Taratap and Tilley Swamp that started yesterday.
The fire at Taratap has burned about 450ha of scrub and pasture and about 250ha of scrub has been burned in the Tilley Swamp Conservation Park.
Fire crews will remain on the scene of both fires today to ensure their are no flare ups.
People in the area of both fires are advised smoke may still be visible.
