WHAT WE KNOW: The warning advice for a bushfire at George Town has been downgraded, and there is now no immediate threat.
Stay up to date with information from the Tasmania Fire Service here.
The TFS has advised residents:
- The SAFEST way to survive is to prepare to leave NOW for a safer place
- If you don't have safe route to a safer place, shelter inside your home until the fire passes
- Do not try to return if you are out of the area.
