Default Bushfire Watch and Act - western Baldivis, City of Rockingham

Bushfire WATCH AND ACT for the western part of Baldivis in the City of Rockingham
Monday 23 February 2015 - 1:11 PM
A bushfire WATCH AND ACT has been issued for people in the western part of Baldivis in the City of Rockingham.

• 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.
• The fire started near the intersection of Wandoo Drive and Wattle Court.
BUSHFIRE BEHAVIOUR:
• It is out of control and unpredictable.
• Burning embers are likely to be blown around your home. Spot fires are starting ahead of the fire.
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.
SAFER PLACE:
• Your safest option may be to visit family or friends who live away from the area.
ROAD CLOSURES:
Avoid the area and be aware of fire and other emergency services personnel working on site
A number of roads have been closed including:
• Sixty Eight Road from Eighty Road to Baldivis Road
• Wandoo Drive
Road information may also be available from Main Roads WA by calling 138 138 or visiting www.mainroads.wa.gov.au.
WHAT FIREFIGHTERS ARE DOING:
• Firefighters are on the scene.
EXTRA INFORMATION:
• The fire was reported at 12.26pm on 23 February.
KEEP UP TO DATE:
