    Bushfire EMERGENCY WARNING for northern part of Ellenbrook in the City of Swan

    Monday 20 January 2014 - 1:52 PM


    ALERT LEVEL:
    A bushfire EMERGENCY WARNING has been issued for people in the northern part of Ellenbrook in the City of Swan.


    • The alert level for this fire has been upgraded.
    • Homes in the northern part of Ellenbrook are being threatened by fire now.
    • You are in danger and need to act immediately to survive. There is a threat to lives and homes.
    • The fire is burning in bushland near Pineroo Terrace, Feredy Loop and Maralla Road.



    BUSHFIRE BEHAVIOUR:
    • The bushfire is moving in a south westerly direction.
    • It is out of control and unpredictable.
    • Burning embers are likely to be blown around your home. Spot fires are starting up to 500 metres ahead of the fire.


    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.
    • There is ember attack ahead of the fire, so close all doors and windows, and turn off evaporative air conditioners, but keep water running through the system if possible.
    • 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.



    ROAD CLOSURES:
    Avoid the area and be aware of fire and other emergency services personnel working on site.
