The Department of Fire and Emergency Services this morning issued an all clear advice for people in the area bounded by Miaboolya Road, Bibbawarra Road, the Gascoyne River and the coastline north of the Gascoyne River in Carnarvon.

A department spokesperson said the danger had passed but urged residents to remain vigilant in case the situation changed.

Firefighters will monitor the area for the rest of the day.

No roads have been closed but motorists are asked to avoid the area or reduce speed and drive carefully due to remaining smoke.

Fifteen Bush Fire Service and local firefighters were despatched to fight the blaze yesterday.

It was brought under control late yesterday afternoon and extinguished this morning.
