Swan ICV and Jandakot's 12.2 have also been sent to the Bindoon incident.

I believe that over 100 firefighters are up there, but none from Swan or Bullsbrook other than the ICV.

EDIT: South Coogee's 2.4 has been tasked to the Bindoon fire. That'll be a nice scenic 130+ km drive for them!

EDIT 2: And Gosnells 2.4 as well!

From Lakes Control - fire has jumped the Great Southern Highway and is heading towards the BGC quarry. Aerial units have so far been unable to stop the head fire and there is spotting some distance ahead.

A further ten appliances are being requested.
