Bushfire WATCH AND ACT for parts of ANKETELL and OAKFORD in the CITY OF KWINANA and SHIRE of SERPENTINE-JARRAHDALE

A bushfire WATCH AND ACT is in place for people bounded by Anketell Road to the north, Tuart Road to the east, Thomas Road to the south, Treeby Road to the west in parts of ANKETELL and OAKFORD in the CITY OF KWINANA and SHIRE of SERPENTINE-JARRAHDALE.

There is a possible threat to lives and homes as a fire is burning in the area and the conditions are changing.

The fire started near the intersection of THOMAS RD and MARRI PARK DR in ANKETELL.

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.
