Default Bushfire WATCH AND ACT -Wattleup and Hammond Park - Cockburn

Bushfire WATCH AND ACT for southern parts of Wattleup and Hammond Park in the City of Cockburn
Wednesday 4 February 2015 - 12:55 PM


ALERT LEVEL:
A bushfire WATCH AND ACT has been issued for people in the southern parts of Wattleup and Hammond Park in the City of Cockburn

There is a possible threat to lives and homes as a fire is approaching the area and conditions are changing.
You need to leave or get ready to actively defend.
There are two fires near the intersection of Mandogolup Road and Wattleup Road. They are burning towards the freeway


BUSHFIRE BEHAVIOUR:

The bushfire is moving in a easterly direction.
It is out of control and unpredictable.
Burning embers are likely to be blown around your home.

WHAT TO DO:

If you are not prepared or you plan to leave, leave now if the way is clear.
There is ember attack ahead of the fire, so close all doors and windows, and turn off evaporative air conditioners, but keep water running through the system if possible.
If you are well prepared and plan to actively defend your home, make final preparations now.
Do not rely on mains water pressure as it may be affected. If you have access to a water tank and plan to defend your home, start patrolling with your hose and put out spot fires.
If you are not at home, do not try to return as conditions in the area could be very dangerous.

ROAD CLOSURES:
Avoid the area and be aware of fire and other emergency services personnel working on site
WHAT FIREFIGHTERS ARE DOING:

Firefighters are at the scene.

EXTRA INFORMATION:

The fire was reported at 12.14pm today
