          • 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 cannot leave, you need to get ready to shelter in your home and actively defend it.
          • If you are not at home, it is too dangerous now to return.
          • 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 westerly direction at 4 to 5 kilometres per hour.
          • It is out of control and unpredictable.
          • Burning embers are likely to be blown around your home.


          SAFEST ROUTE:
          People should leave in a westerly direction towards Brand Highway and head in a north or south direction.


          ROAD CLOSURES AND CONDITIONS:

          Woodbine Road has been closed

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

          Road information may also be available from Main Roads WA by calling 138 138 or visiting www.mainroads.wa.gov.au OR SHIRE OF DANDARAGAN.

          EXTRA INFORMATION:

          • The fire was reported at 10:34 AM on 8 November 2019.
          • Currently there has been 400 hectares burnt.
