Waroona Bushfire- fire risk closes Greater Bunbury petrol stations

SEVERAL petrol stations in Eaton, Australind and Treendale have been ordered to stop serving fuel.

The decision has been made that the ash in the air from the Waroona bushfire has made pumping fuel too dangerous. 

The Bunbury Mail understands petrol stations in town are still operating. 

Caltex Woolworths in Eaton operator Ryan Heaterman said they were ordered to stop serving fuel about 2pm due to the risk of ash and embers causing a risk of fire if they came into contact with fuel. 

"Most petrol stations in Australind, Eaton and Treendale have been closed," he said.

"We have had a lot of customers hear due to word of mouth and we have been told to wait for further instruction.

"While we can not sell fuel, we are still selling products."

More to come.
