BUSHFIRE BEHAVIOUR:

Around 35 Bush Fire Service and Department of Environment and Conservation firefighters are on the scene.

The Aircrane, one Type 1 Helicopter, four fixed wing water bombers and the Air Intelligence Helicopter have been sent to assist ground crews.

Crews are using heavy machinery to establish containment lines.

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale is also in attendance.

Approximately three hectares have been burnt.
