Bushfire WATCH AND ACT for parts of CASCADE in SHIRE OF ESPERANCE

ALERT LEVEL:

A bushfire WATCH AND ACT has been issued for people in an area bounded by West Point Road, Clare Road and River Road in CASCADE in SHIRE OF ESPERANCE.

  • There is a possible threat to lives and homes as a fire is approaching in the area and conditions are changing.
  • You need to leave or get ready to actively defend.
  • The fire started near the intersection of RIVER ROAD and CASCADE ROAD in CASCADE.
WHAT TO DO:
  • If your plan is to stay and actively defend, 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 prepared or you plan to leave, leave now if the way is clear.
  • If you are well prepared and plan to actively defend your home, make final preparations now.
  • If you are not at home, do not try to return as conditions in the area could be very dangerous.
  • Close all doors and windows and turn off evaporative air conditioners, but keep water running through the system if possible.

BUSHFIRE BEHAVIOUR:

  • The bushfire is moving fast in a north easterly direction.
  • It is out of control and unpredictable.


ROAD CLOSURES AND CONDITIONS:

Roads have not been closed.

Motorists are asked to avoid the area, reduce speed and drive carefully due to smoke.

  • Aerial support has been sent to assist ground crews.

  • Currently there has been 600 hectares burnt.
  • Shire of Esperance is managing the fire.
