BUSH FIRES and FOOD SHORTAGES in ROMSEY from TAKE AWAY outlets

ATTENTION: Romsey Community

It has come to our attention that due to the local bushfires (most are under control at 11.59 pm Sunday Feb 9th 2014), many of the local take aways in Romsey ttownship have run out of food.

Note: the Michelham, Springfiield, Wallan, Kilmore fire (heading north mid way between Lancefield and Kilmore) is still out of control (22km long) despite the cooler conditions. Romsey residents need to WATCH and ACT.

Many hundreds of vehicles have been diverted through Romsey township due to these fires and the closures of main highways.

We recommend that should you require food then the Romsey FISH and CHIP Shop is remaining open until they run out of food tonight.

Please tune in to ABC radio for updates and check the CFA website for the latest on the fires:
