A separate bushfire warning is current for residents in the Cobraball, Bungundarra, Maryvale and Lake Mary area. These residents should refer to the bushfire warning for Cobraball/Bungundarra/Maryvale/Lake Mary.

People in the area will be affected by smoke, which will reduce visibility and air quality.
