There is an uncontrolled bushfire at Brigdenorth Road.

This fire may put Brigdenorth Road at high risk Within 2 hours.

There may be embers, smoke and ash falling on Brigdenorth Road and threaten your home earlier than the main fire.

Fire under these conditions can be difficult to control.

What to do:

If your home is well prepared and actively defended, it should provide shelter.

If you are going to leave, make sure you have a clear path to a safer place.

If your family has made a bushfire survival plan, use it now.

If you don't live near Brigdenorth Road, stay away. The roads could be very dangerous.
