Default Re: Bushfire EMERGENCY WARNING for Northcliffe in the Shire of Manjimup

Residents of the tiny WA community of Windy Harbour are being evacuated onto the beach as a bushfire sweeping the area burns out of control for a sixth day.

A house and a number of sheds have been destroyed in Northcliffe and a second fire in Lower Hotham in the Shire of Boddington, about 120 kilometres south of Perth, is also out of control.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) has issued emergency warnings for both fires, which are threatening homes and lives.

An emergency situation has been declared for the Northcliffe blaze, providing authorities with additional powers in an attempt to minimise the severity of the fire.

Default Re: Bushfire EMERGENCY WARNING for Northcliffe in the Shire of Manjimup

Residents refusing to evacuate their properties in the face of a fierce bushfire south of Perth are being warned fire crews will not risk their lives for those who refuse to leave.

The fire has been raging in Northcliffe, 350 kilometres south of Perth, for six days.

Authorities said a south-westerly wind change had blown out the northern flank of the fire, which was directly lined up to hit the Northcliffe town centre.

The fire has doubled in size and burnt through 58,000 hectares, with the town now considered indefensible.

There were unconfirmed reports that two houses and a number of sheds had been destroyed.

Residents have been warned at a community meeting that the massive fire is a grave and imminent threat to the town.
