A fire that has been burning near Bibra Lake in the suburb of Coolbellup in Cockburn has been upgraded again at midday as lives and homes are at risk according to FESA.
The fire started at 6 am at Pioneer Park near Progress Drive and is believed to have been deliberately lit.
The students of the nearby Waldorf School had to seek shelter inside the school when the fire broke containment lines mid morning.
I just came back from there and there are a lot of very worried people in the area watching the helicopters and fixed-wing planes dumping water on the fires not far from there homes. There was a strong breeze and that is not helpful.
The Watercolour Society of WA is trying to help the people in Yarloop and Waroona who where affected by the recent giant bush fires and will be holding an art auction at the Italian Club in Fremantle on Thursday February 4 at 6.30 pm.
Auctioneer will be well-known motor mouth Bob Maumill from 6 PR, so come and support the good cause and by a few artworks.
