A massive bushfire in Western Australia that killed two people continues to burn, but milder conditions are helping firefighters bring it under control.

The fire engulfed the entire town of Yarloop near Perth last week, destroying at least 128 homes.

Police say the bodies of two men in their 70s have been discovered in the debris of burnt-out houses.

More favourable conditions on Sunday allowed firefighters to set up containment lines.

The fire perimeter is currently around 232km (144 miles), the Department of Fire & Emergency Service (DFES), local Australian media reports.
