Bushfire in WA's south destroys buildings
user posted image

At least one home and buildings at a holiday-stay farm have been destroyed as bushfires ripped through Western Australia, with all the fires being downgraded.

An emergency fire warning has been reduced to a watch and act message for Redmond, Marbelup and Elleker - north and south of Lower Denmark Road - in the City of Albany on Friday night.

"You need to leave or get ready to actively defend," the Emergency WA message warns.

An advice message has been put out for southern parts of Elleker and parts of Napier with residents told there was no longer an immediate threat to their lives or homes.

But it's too late for a residential property razed in the fire in Napier, although the owners are safe.

Linda Hoskins, proprietor of Nutkin Lodge at Peaceful Bay, said some of the buildings on her 200-acre property - which contains cottages, sheds and campgrounds - had been destroyed.

"There are some buildings that are damaged and some are intact. The intact more than likely are smoke damaged," Ms Hoskins told AAP.

Nasty fire with nasty wind. Bad combo.

City of Albany Mayor Dennis Wellington has expressed anger the fires were caused by prescribed burns that were carried out despite fierce wind forecasts earlier this week.
