Fire crews warning of more danger for SA

SPECIALIST teams race against time to assess areas damaged by bushfires in the Adelaide Hills today as fire crews prepare for deteriorating weather conditions expected to hit again on Wednesday.

Fire crews will be sent in to burnt out areas of the Adelaide Hills to assess the damage caused by the Sampson Flat bushfire that continues to burn out of control.

Crews were focusing on protecting pockets of homes at greatest risk including conducting back-burning operations.

Premier Jay Weatherill said crews would increase their efforts against the bushfire from the air, in a bid to get some control before the weather conditions worsened.

"Today we are hoping to use very large air tankers that come from Victoria to dump about 11 really large loads on the fire front," Mr Weatherill said.
