Fire alerts ranging from severe to extreme for much of
Western Australia have prompted total fire bans in many
areas, including parts of the Goldfields-Midlands region.
With temperatures set to soar again on Monday, the Department
of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) has also issued a ban
for parts of the Midwest Gascoyne region.
The DFES warned residents in the Central Wheatbelt and inland
parts of the Great Southern and Central West they would be
facing extreme fire danger, while those in the Gascoyne,
Eucla, Pilbara, coastal parts of the Great Southern and the
Upper Great Southern are facing severe fire danger.
On Sunday an emergency warning was downgraded to an advice
alert for a bushfire four kilometres east of Toodyay.
The DFES said the blaze was contained and under control.
