A bushfire is threatening lives and homes in a remote Aboriginal community in Western Australia’s Kimberley.
The bushfire emergency warning has been issued for Egret near Kununurra in the region’s north-east.
“You are in danger and need to act immediately to survive,” the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) has warned.
“There is a threat to lives and homes.”
The local volunteer fire brigade said about 12 homes were under threat.
The fire is moving in a westerly direction.
