There have been several bushfires in the district over the years. There have been some homes lost as a result. Some parts are classified as high-risk areas as they back directly on to bushland. The RFS carry out hazard reduction in the area to reduce the risk of harm.
I wouldn't think that it is particularly fire prone.However it is surrounded by a beautiful National Park and bushlands,So if there are Bush fires in these areas it would be high risk in some parts of Engadine.
