An uncontrollable bushfire rages in the Adelaide Hills with an emergency warning urging people to implement their survival plans

The warning was issued for the out-of-control fire near Cherry Gardens, about 25 km from Adelaide on Sunday afternoon by the South Australian Fire Department

“Conditions are dangerous and firefighters are now unable to prevent the spread of the fire,” says the alert

“Take shelter before the fire arrives because the heat can kill you long before the flames reach you”

The fire burns in “extreme weather conditions” as temperatures in the state capital continue to exceed 40 ° C

The winds are expected to change direction and the fire is expected to head towards Kangarilla, Scott Creek, Longwood, Mount Bold, Mylor and Heathfield, said Yvette Dowling, CFS deputy state commander
