There is a large, fast moving bushfire in the Licola area.
It is travelling towards the Licola Road.
Licola and surrounding areas are now isolated.
This bushfire is out of control.
The fire is now at the Licola Road.
It is now too late to leave Licola.

Best luck to anyone in the area and your daughter. I can only imagine the worry you must have right now. It's good to know they evacuated, but you think they would do more to contact parents ASAP so they know WHERE exactly their kids are at any moment. I can imagine she wants to hear your voice for comfort as bad as you want to hear hers.
