Bushfire victims recovering from the horrific blazes on Kangaroo Island are being told to evacuate immediately.

Dangerous conditions are set to return to the area on Thursday, with firefighters bracing for 40C temperatures. 

Around 140 people in Vivonne Bay, a popular tourist area on the south coast, are being evacuated.

The island was devastated over the weekend, with more than a third of its entire land burned.
