bushfire 2



Four sheds as well as fences were destroyed on at least one property on Thornwick Crescent Chidlow. Residents were advised by automated Emergency Alert text to relocate to the Chidlow Recreation Centre (Chidlow oval).

DFES are reporting the fire is no longer burning. DFES say the fire was caused accidentally by a private power pole collapsing and igniting a grass fire.

DFES updates here:


 The fire started between Old Northam Road, Chauncy Place, Haigh Road and Forsyth Place.
