The Bridgetown man who suffered serious burns while trying to protect his rural property from an out-of-control bushfire is still in a critical but stable condition. St John Ambulance was called to a property about 4pm on Saturday, roughly 3km outside of the Lower South West town, which was under threat from the massive blaze. The man suffered serious burns from the fire, requiring a team from the Department of Fire and Emergency Services to immediately transport the man to Bridgetown Hospital while awaiting an evacuation helicopter. He was treated at the Bridgetown hospital until 7.18pm when he was airlifted to Fiona Stanley Hospital in Perth, where he arrived about 8.30pm. An RAC rescue helicopter arrived just before 5pm, landing at the Bridgetown Showgrounds right next to the hospital. A Fiona Stanley Hospital spokesperson confirmed on Tuesday the man was in a critical but stable condition. DFES Commissioner Darren Klemm confirmed on Sunday the man had been burnt while trying to fight a fire on his rural property in Bridgetown on Saturday afternoon. The Bridgetown Hospital was evacuated on Saturday night, with its emergency department remaining open at the time for those in need of urgent medical care. It is understood at least 10 patients were relocated to other medical facilities in Manjimup and Boyup Brook.
