Bushfire controlled in WA town

Australia

A bushfire has been brought under control in a small town in Western Australia.

But residents in Allanson are being warned there is “a possible threat to lives and lives” after about 30 firefighters managed to get on top of the fire on Sunday afternoon.

The fire had been downgraded from the highest warning level just hours earlier.

“The alert level for this fire has been downgraded as the running fire has been contained,” the warning reads.

But locals are still being told to “leave or get ready to actively defend”.

An advice warning has also been issued for Collie with residents to keep alert to any changes.
