Follow your bushfire survival plan now. If you do not have a plan, your safest option is to leave now if it is clear to do so. If you are not in the area, do not return, as conditions are too dangerous.

Currently as at 3.15pm Thursday 14 November, a fast-moving bushfire is burning near Kinkuna Waters Estate.
