On a record-breaking day of searing temperatures across the state, the CFS fought 45 fires in dangerous conditions. An emergency warning was still in place on Wednesday night for the Yorketown fire, with the St Vincent Highway closed at several junctions. CFS warned that the fire had spread south, towards the coast, but was also spreading east and west.
