The County Fire service is advising all landowners that the burning of land is illegal since the first of March and are asking them to stop all controlled burning immediately.
Crews from Bantry, Castletownbere, Schull, Skibbereen, Dunmanway, Midleton, Macroom, Mallow and Fermoy have all attended various gorse and outdoor fires since Thursday.
