Fire rips through bushland along Kwinana Freeway

Fire has burned through bushland close to the Kwinana Freeway on Saturday afternoon.

Fire crews have been at the scene of the blaze since it started around 1:50pm in an area bounded by the Kwinana Freeway, Anketell Road, Treeby Road and Thomas Road in Anketell.

Road closures are still in place for the area - Main Roads said the Kwinana freeway's on and off ramp southbound at Thomas Road are shut, along with Bombay Boulevard from the freeway to Thomas Road.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services said while the fire is now contained, the cause is suspicious, and urges drivers to "avoid the area, reduce speed and drive carefully due to smoke."
