One home lost, two people injured in WA bushfire

A house was destroyed and two people injured as a bushfire continues to burn south of Perth in Donnybrook.

Nine News Perth reported that one home was destroyed and others damaged in the fast-moving fire, which started on Tuesday and flared up suddenly over the weekend after a rapid wind shift.

A watch-and-act alert was issued after around 100 firefighters battled the 6000-acre Donnybrook-Balingup Shire fire.

The fire was kept behind containment lines on Sunday, with roads in the area closed.

The fire was believed to have been started by lightning.

Meanwhile, firefighters in South Australia have managed to contain a bushfire in the Adelaide Hills east of the national capital.

The fire burned approximately 45 acres after Montacute residents were told Saturday to leave or take shelter.

By Saturday night, the blaze was contained, and firefighters stayed on site to monitor hotspots.

Two firefighters received minor injuries and are both recovering.
