    UPDATE: BUSHFIRE - WESTERN PART OF FORRESTDALE AND THE SOUTHERN PART OF PIARA WATERS – CITY OF ARMADALE

    A bushfire WATCH AND ACT has been issued for people in the area near Taylor Road, Gibbs Road and Armadale Road in the western part of Forrestdale and the southern part of Piara Waters in the City of Armadale.

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

    Rowley Road off ramp is closed at Kwinana Freeway (southbound), as well as Nicholson Road (both directions) from Rowley Road to Armadale Road.

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


    Stay safe everyone!

    Have been watching it since lunchtime today. Constant sirens down Nicholson rd with the heat being high the next few days it's going to be harder to bring it under control

      This one is looking particularly nasty, much more intense than the Kwinana fire a couple of weeks back.

            The view from the CBD is quite concerning, the smoke coming from the fire is massive!

                  Bailed on work ~2pm, home in Harrisdale at the moment. Received the Aubin Grove and Atwell SMS, although I'm at least 3-4km away. Heavy smoke at the girlfriend's parent's place, her old boy's got the sprinklers on and hosing the house down in case of embers in Atwell. I'm just North of Piara Waters.

                  Hoping the breeze doesn't switch around later in the afternoon.

                      Just a heads up, there's actually 2 items being tracked at the moment (not entirely sure why): DFES Alerts and Warnings

                      Click the link and select which is applicable to you based on the road boundaries they refer to.

                        Just went down freeway from Armadale rd to safety bay rd.
                        Russell rd east bound is shut and so is Rowley rd.
                        Police at these off ramps about 15 mins traffic in a cage .
                        Reason why traffic is slow? People gawking obviously.

                        Ps if you have a house around there I hope you and it are ok
