ACT Fire and Rescue and ACT Parks and Conservation Service firefighters are currently extinguishing two garage fires at Bear Place, Chisholm.

The fires are in neighbouring yards.

Two ACT Fire and Rescue pumpers, one Commander and two heavy Parks and Conservation tankers are on scene.

The community is asked to avoid the area.

The fires are being fanned by very strong winds with gusty showers and storms affecting the ACT.

A thunderstorm warning has been issued across the region, with an 89 km/h wind gust already been observed at the Canberra airport.
