Firefighters are working to contain a blaze north of Binningup in bushland this afternoon.

Department of Fire and Emergency Services is yet to determine the cause of the fire, which has burnt through about 5ha of scrub, trees and grass.

A loader has been sent through to help clear some land and two fire crews are already on scene with another three on the way, according to DFES.

A south-westerly wind is forcing firefighters to take all precautions.

More as it comes to hand.
