Multiple blazes are burning in the Shire of Gingin caused by dry lightning strikes.

Improved weather conditions have helped firefighters bring the fire under control, but it is not contained.

An emergency warning has now been downgraded to a watch and act.

But residents in Cowalla, Moore River National Park, Wanerie, Beermullah, Orange Springs are being urged to remain on high alert in case the situation changes.

There is a possible threat to lives and homes, and anyone who isn’t prepared or plans to leave should do so now if the way is clear.
