Just in, a bowser pump & a car at the Shell Petrol station in Emerald had caught ablaze. It is safe now. That was the ONLY thing that was on fire in the area of Emerald.

Hey guys
I'm up the top end of McNicol Road (next to the station)... Very worrying at the moment. Got everything packed, and ready to evac at the first sign of the fire heading this way...

But yeah, the smoke is creating an interesting sunset! Really hoping this one is bought under control... Sad
cya's!

Well good news, the fires around Upwey & co... have been braught down to an 'alert' rather than an 'urgent evacuation'. I was standing ontop of a hill in Berwick overlooking the fires.

We already have a bushfire thread, we don't need a new one for every fire that crops up, however urgent you feel the information may be. I'm sure the CFA and Police are more than capable of getting the message out to people than Railpage.

Thread Locked.
