There are reports that at least two homes have been lost in an out-of-control bushfire that has caused widespread power outages and burnt through 2386ha west of Denmark.

A community meeting has been called for 2pm at the Denmark Civic Centre on Strickland Street, with two evacuation centres open at the Walpole Sport and Recreation Centre and the Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre.

An evacuation centre opened on Friday at the Denmark Recreation Centre is now closed.
