Significant bush fires 2012/13

Post by Zebedee » Fri Oct 26, 2012 9:03 am

This thread is predominantly for third alarm and above bush fires however if it is a significant fire (ie threatening homes and businesses) that is at least second alarm then it will be acceptable. If it's not one of those things then post it in one of the other, more appropriate threads.

Remember also that quoting others has been disabled in this thread and WILL NOT WORK.

Please keep the posts to factual information - not rumour, hearsay, possibilities, theories etc. Also keep the information brief and to the point.

Questions about what is going on, who is turning out, why someone isn't turning out etc should be done in the general fire discussions thread.

Posts to this thread will also be auto-posted to Twitter. If you use Twitter, feel free to follow @WARSUG

Thankyou for your cooperation.

3rd alarm plus up at Guilderton. Appliances are being released now, and FESA says the fire is contained but not under control yet. Also Water bombers were used and Helitac 671 was up as support (Does not have the water tank fitted)

So far I have heard Guilderton, Waneroo, West Swan.
