A bushfire advice has been issued for people travelling on or near the Great Northern Highway, 10km south of South Hedland.

Firefighters are actively fighting the blaze, which started near the intersection of Great Northern Highway and Boodarie Drive.

The bushfire is moving fast in a westerly direction and is out of control and unpredictable.

There is no current threat to lives or homes, however, The Department of Fire and Emergency Services is urging road users to keep up to date in case the situation changes.
