Last night this was the scene on the property of my daughter and son in law.
The Firies and neighbouring property owners were there quickly and through their hard work, the fire was brought under control and danger averted. They then went off to fight two fires on neighbouring properties.
This is the third fire started by lightning, on their property this summer. Each time the firies and neighbours have been there to help. And my Son in Law naturally helps fight the fires on other properties too.
These same guys at Christmas took the time to bring Santa to the kids on the properties in the area.
This is just one rural area. When you multiply this work all around Australia, especially with the number of fires at this time, it is an unimaginable contribution to the whole of the Australian community.
