The bushfire has been contained and is under control.
The danger has passed but you need to remain vigilant in case the situation changes.
Emergency WA has issued a bushfire watch & act warning to people bounded by Caves Road, Forest Grove Road, Harrison Road and Calgardup Road in Forest Grove.
The bushfire is moving fast in a south westerly direction.
It is out of control and unpredictable.
There is a possible threat to lives and homes as a fire is approaching in the area and conditions are changing.
You need to leave or get ready to actively defend.
WHAT TO DO:
- If you are not prepared or you plan to leave, leave now if the way is clear.
- If you are well prepared and plan to actively defend your home, make final preparations now.
- If you are not at home, do not try to return as conditions in the area could be very dangerous.
- Close all doors and windows and turn off evaporative air conditioners, but keep water running through the system if possible.
