In Port Lincoln, where a blaze is raging in a southerly direction and endangering a number of houses, South Australia's Country Fire Service has issued an emergency warning to locals along a number of routes. People living near Stamford Drive, Kathai Drive, Noontina Drive, Hassel Road, and Pine Freezers Road were warned. About 200 firefighters and six aircraft are battling a grassfire that is spreading in a south to south-easterly trajectory towards Tulka, according to the CFS. People in the vicinity are urged to find refuge and refrain from driving. You are now in danger. Now seek safety within a sturdy structure. It is too late to depart as you cannot access or exit this region on foot or in a vehicle.The warning stated that the roadways would not be secure. Firefighters are now unable to stop the fire from spreading because of the hazardous conditions. Before the fire arrives, take cover; heat kills people far sooner than flames.Even though the nearby trash dump was engulfed in flames, CFS Deputy State Controller Brenton Hastie informed ABC Radio that no residences have been affected as of yet. Between 4 and 5 p.m. on Thursday, a shift in the wind, he claimed, was preventing firemen from being able to put out the fire. A CFS warning warned those living in the northern and western suburbs to get ready to defend their houses or to depart as a precaution. As temperatures rose into the mid 30s on Thursday, the bureau of meteorology issued an exceptional fire danger warning for the Eastern Eyre Peninsula and Mount Lofty Ranges fire weather regions. On Thursday, Port Lincoln was forecast to see temperatures of 37 C and winds of up to 30 km/h.
