Western Australia bushfire under control

A bushfire in Western Australia that had been threatening lives and homes is now control.

Authorities say that residents are no longer in danger in Kingia Road in the eastern part of Wundowie in the Shire of Northam, about 90km northeast of Perth.

The blaze was first reported at 2.30pm (local time) on December 23 but the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) said the flames reignited on Monday and jumped containment lines.

It started north of Coates Road between Hawkes Road and Sims Road and is now burning within containment lines.

"There is no threat to lives or homes but there is a lot of smoke in the area," a DFES spokesman said.

"Although there is no immediate danger you need to be aware and keep up to date in case the situation changes."
