leave a comment »

CFA advises residents in Cheshunt East of a fire on the west and south sides of the Black Range, south of the Whitfield-Buffalo Rd. The fire is within 5km of Rose River Rd Cheshunt.

The fire is travelling in a southerly direction with some spotting visible ahead of the fire., and residents in the areas of Rose River Rd, Smalls Rd, Millers La, Ryans La, Swinburnes La and Paradise Falls Rd may be threatened by this fire.

These residents are advised to activate their fire plans immediately.

Residents in this area are advised that embers may be landing around their property soon, and that they should take all measures to put them out as they arrive.

It is important that all residents protect themselves from radiant heat by wearing the right clothing. Residents should wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants, sturdy boots, and a broad rimmed hat. On no account should synthetic material be worn.

As the front of the fire approaches it will become unsafe to be either on foot or in a car as the heat radiating from the fire will be intense. Residents should avoid being exposed to radiant heat at all costs, and should make use of structures like their homes to shelter as the fire front passes.

After the front has passed, residents should immediately begin to patrol their house looking for embers or areas that are burning, and extinguish them as best they can.
