ABOUT 40 volunteer and career firefighters are battling a fire in Jandabup believed to have been deliberately lit.

The blaze, also being fought by two helitacs, was reported at 12.42pm and is believed to have started with a vehicle on fire in Paini Way before spreading to bushland.

DFES has issued a bushfire advice and several roads have been closed, including the southern end of Quail Road.


The City of Wanneroo is managing the fire which has burnt through 15ha.

A DFES spokeswoman said the blaze was moving in a north-easterly direction and was contained and under control.
