Perth Bushfire



An out of control bushfire about 90 kilometres north of Perth is threatening homes as fire authorities warn residents to evacuate or get ready to actively defend their properties.

The fire, which has not yet been contained, is burning near the corner of Diamond Island Road and Guilderton Road in the Shire of Gingin.

The blaze, reported at 11.20am (WST) today, is moving slowly in a east south-easterly direction.
Authorities have issued a "watch and act" alert and are warning residents to leave or get ready to actively defend their homes.

Motorists are warned to avoid the area and be aware of emergency services personnel working in the area.

Twenty firefighters from eight stations and brigades are at the scene.http://www.skynews.com.au/local/article.aspx?id=810411
