Fire burning in Madora Bay

UPDATE:

MORE than 200sqm of grass has been burnt in a fire started by a broken down car in Madora Bay.

Mandurah Fire and Rescue crews attended the Mandurah Road scene shortly before 9.30am this morning.

A motorist passing by stopped in the southbound lanes of Mandurah Road and was able to douse the fire before fire crews arrived.

The vehicle that started the blaze was moved onto a hardstand area and off the burning grass.

Due to the westerly breeze, smoke is still making visibility low for motorists travelling northbound on Mandurah Road.

The fire has been extinguished and fire crews will depart the scene shortly.

FIRE crews are on the way to a scrub fire in Madora Bay.

The fire, burning on Mandurah Road is threatening to jump the road and head into the bushland on Madora Beach Road.

It is believed the fire was started by a car that pulled over onto the grass earlier today.

That report remains unconfirmed.

A passer by arrived first at the scene and attempted to douse one of the two burning scrub fires.

Smoke is making visibility low for cars travelling northbound on Mandurah Road.
