Eagle Bay fires: Trapped locals and tourists preparing to be evacuated from Eagle Bay

Residents and holiday-makers stranded in Eagle Bay and Bunker Bay are set to be evacuated from the area on Tuesday afternoon.

Department of Fire and Emergency Services incident controller Blake Moore said people who wished to leave would be assisted out of the area by police, firefighters and rangers.

The convoy will leave from two community safe points — Eagle Bay Community Hall and The Pullman Bunker Bay Resort — at 4pm.

Those who would like to be evacuated have been urged to be ready and wait at the community safe points by 3.30pm.

“I just want to reinforce that this is not a forced evacuation,” Insp. Moore said.
