The bush fire that began in Hillville on Thursday afternoon, November 7 is now threatening the communities of Old Bar and Wallabi Point.
Journalist Nick Brooks is at Old Bar. Old Bar Road is blocked and Nick has his car packed and has moved his family to the beach for safety.
He reports that people are watering down their houses and preparing to evacuate.
"The fire is moving really fast and the smoke is incredible," he said. "People are out on the street."
He says there is a sense of people not knowing what to do - "should we stay or go."
Nick said last night the fire moved through bushland behind Old Bar and Wallabi, missing the villages. However this morning the wind changed direction.
Nick spoke to the Rural Fire Service this morning. The Hillville fire has burnt about 1200 hectares and while there is no confirmation that properties have been lost, there is the assumption that that is the case.
