This is a Watch and Act message issued by Country Fire Authority for Trawool, Kerrisdale, Granite.

This bushfire is currently not yet under control.

A wind change from the South West is imminent with gusts up to 100kms per hour. This will cause the fire to change directions and travel towards the Goulburn Valley Highway.

Spot fires are expected to occur ahead of the fire front following this wind change.

Residents of Trawool, Kerrisdale and Granite are advised to activate their bushfire plan in anticipation of this wind change.

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.
