Bushfire all clear: Western part of Forest Grove area


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.


  • 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.
