The alert level for the fire in our region has been downgraded overnight as fire conditions have moderated and conditions are favourable.
The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) is managing the fire and they give thanks to the community for making them feel welcome and for taking such great care of the firefighters and emergency personnel. Including feeding over 120 tired and weary firefighters and incident management team.
The bushfire at Cowerdup has been downgraded to a Bushfire Advice, which remains current for people in the in the vicinity of Cowerdup and Moir Road, John Forrest Road and Marr Road, in the eastern parts of Fitzgerald River National Park and excludes the Hopetoun and Ravensthorpe townsites.
There is no threat to lives or homes. There is a lot of smoke in the area. Although there is no immediate danger you need to be aware and keep up to date in case the situation changes.
An ALL CLEAR advice is in place for people travelling along the South Coast Highway and including Ravensthorpe townsite and the areas to the east of Culham Beach and west of Hamersley Inlet in the Fitzgerald River National Park near Hopetoun. The danger has passed but you need to remain vigilant in case the situation changes.
