The bushfire which has burnt across 1,920 hectares threatened Cheap Prom Dresses at the coastal retreat of Tidal River. More than 135 firefighters, 20 tankers, 14 fire brigade vehicles and six aircraft are battling the 8km-long fire. DSE State Fire Co-ordinator Kevin Monk said the bushfire was burning coastal heath and scrub, which had not burned in about 40 years. "Protecting key community areas and assets, in the Tidal River area, are a priority for us," Mr Long Prom Dresses said. "We're anticipating these assets will be OK."
Mr Monk said the evacuation of the park was successful, with the Short Prom Dresses park now closed. "All campers and hikers were registered and safely evacuated," he said. Before fire and police authorities moved in to help campers, hundreds of people were stranded at Tidal River camping ground. Park rangers woke campers and 544 people took Corset Prom Dresses from the blaze on the beach at Norman Bay. They stayed there until midday today when emergency crews decided it was safe for them to drive out under escort in their own cars.
Another thirty people were flown by helicopter to Tidal River from another part of the park so they could drive to safety. A further 30 people were taken by boat to Barry Beach and then on by High Low Prom Dresses to an evacuation centre at Foster, where they will wait out the fire. The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a gale warning for Wilsons Promontory with winds gusting above 30 knots tonight and up to 35 knots tomorrow morning. Ms Fisher said a cool change predicted for about midday tomorrow could give firefighters a chance to bring the blaze under control.
