Perth Hills bushfire warning downgraded | Daily Central West


news, national

A bushfire in the Perth Hills has been brought under control and an evacuation order has been downgraded to monitor and act. The blaze is burning inside containment lines at High Wycombe, 11 miles northeast of the city, at the foot of the hills and near Perth Airport. “There is a possible threat to lives and homes as a fire approaches the area and conditions change,” said the updated warning issued on Wednesday afternoon. A previous emergency warning had ordered residents in the path of a bushfire to leave as homes were threatened. The fire started near the intersection of Sultana Road West and Smokebush Place east of the airport. Perth endured a week of scorching temperatures, with the airport area reaching 39.5C around 1 p.m. Wednesday. The blaze comes two days after another blaze destroyed a house in the Chidlow area, about 25 miles east. Associated Australian Press
