Bushfire WATCH AND ACT for town of MARBLE BAR in the SHIRE OF EAST PILBARA

A bushfire WATCH AND ACT is in place for people in the town of MARBLE BAR and surrounding areas in the SHIRE OF EAST PILBARA.

There is a possible threat to lives and homes as a fire is burning in the area and the conditions are changing. Ember attack is possible, please prepare your property.

The fire is burning along MARBLE BAR Road.

The bushfire is moving in a south easterly direction.

It is not contained or controlled.

WHAT TO DO

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 plan to stay and actively defend, do not rely on mains water pressure as it may be affected. You need to have access to an independent water supply, and start patrolling your property to put out spot fires.

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

If you are not at home, do not try to return as conditions in the area could be very dangerous.
