UPDATE: Glenburn fire now under control

The fast moving grassfire at Larritts Lane, Glenburn that is now under control.
Emergency service vehicles will be in the area for some time and residents are asked to stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary.
Tune your radio to 774kHz ABC Melbourne for regular updates or radio scanner to CFA Region 12.

What you should do:
The best protection from radiant heat is distance.
Travel to:
  • The home of family or friends that are away from the warning area.
  • When you leave remember to take your pets, mobile phone and medications.
  • If you encounter smoke or flames whilst travelling, turn around and drive to safety. If you’re unable to turn around and drive to safety, a car offers more protection from the fire’s heat than being caught on foot in the open.
  • Keep the roads clear so emergency services can respond.
  • If you are away from home do not return.
If you stay, seek shelter indoors: 
  • Bring your pets indoors.
  • Close all exterior doors, windows and vents and turn off cooling systems.
  • Shelter in a room that has a door and or a window to the outside so you can keep an eye on what is happening with the fire.

Impacts in your area:

  • Grassfires can start and spread quickly and are extremely dangerous.
