THREE MILE FIRE UPGRADED TO EMERGENCY

TUESDAY 2:45pm 

The Three Mile bushfire that’s been burning for a number of days on the Central Coast has been upgraded to an Emergency Warning.

The advice from RFS if you’re in the Central Mangrove and Kulnura areas is to seek shelter as the fire approaches, and protect yourself from the heat of the fire. It’s too late to leave.

People should monitor conditions, and leaving early is your safest option in the areas of Lower Macdonald, Lower Mangrove, Greengrove, Mangrove Creek, Mangrove Mountain, Gunderman, Spencer, Peats Ridge, Calga, Mount White, Glenworth Valley, Bucketty, St Albans, Mogo Creek and Higher Macdonald.

If you are in the area of Mangrove Mountain and your plan is to leave, use Wisemans Ferry Road and Peats Ridge Road towards Gosford.

The fire has so far burnt through close to 35,000 hectres, merging with the Wrights Creek fire.

ROAD CLOSURES:

Wisemans Ferry Road is closed between Wisemans Ferry and Mangrove Mountain.
George Downes Drive is closed north of Bucketty.
Waratah Road is closed at Wisemans Ferry Road
Oyster Shell Road is closed at Wisemans Ferry Road.
Kyola Road is closed at George Downes Drive.
Williams Road is closed at George Downes Drive.

A ‘Watch and Act’ warning remains in place for the Gospers Mountain, Little L Complex and Kerry Ridge fires to the north west of the Three Mile fire.
