Bushfire EMERGENCY WARNING for southern part of HIGH WYCOMBE in the CITY OF KALAMUNDA

A bushfire EMERGENCY WARNING is in place for people in the area bounded by Sultana Road, Milner Road, Maida Vale Road, Kalamunda Road, Hawtin Road and Bruce Road in the southern part of HIGH WYCOMBE in the CITY OF KALAMUNDA.

You are in danger and need to act immediately to survive. There is a threat to lives and homes.

The fire started near the intersection of SULTANA RD W and SMOKEBUSH PL in HIGH WYCOMBE.

The bushfire is moving in a north westerly direction.

It is out of control and unpredictable.

WHAT TO DO

If the way is clear, leave now for a safer place.

Do not wait and see, leaving at the last minute is deadly.

Close all doors and windows and turn off evaporative air conditioners, but keep water running through the system if possible.

If you cannot leave, you need to get ready to shelter in your home.

Go to a room in your home away from the fire front and make sure you can easily escape.

Choose a room with two exits and water such as a kitchen or laundry.

If you are not at home, it's too dangerous to return.
