Default Bushfire - Hastings, VIC

Watch and Act

This is a Watch and Act message issued by Country Fire Authority for Hastings.

There is a medium sized bushfire travelling quickly in a southerly direction from Reid Pde towards the Warringine Park.


This bushfire is currently not yet under control.

Spot fires and ember attacks are starting up within the Warringine park ahead of the main fire.

The fire will impact on residents in the Seaglades Lane area any time between 16:30 PM and 17:30PM.

Don't wait, leaving now is the safest option - conditions may change and get worse very quickly. Emergency Services may not be able to help you if you decide to stay.

When driving, slow down and turn on your headlights; smoke will make it difficult to see.
