Bushfires

Bushfires are a fact of life in Australia but no-one ever expects the total devastation and loss of life that have occurred in Victoria this weekend.

These photos are not of the Victorian fires (which are about 1600 kilometres away) but a small fire across the road from my house in 2007.

My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this terrible tragedy.

Scarey stuff. It's hard to imagine when everything's so wet and cold over here. Great reportage though.

We get wildfires here all year round now. Fortunately, are fire and police do an excellent job in prevention, notification of residents and extinguishing such horrible events. Many are caused by arsonists and many are caused by the Santa Ana winds. A few years back our whole southern part of our state was in flames. I couldln't see the next street from my backyard there was soooo much smoke. Scary flames we could see in the mountains. But we were all prepared to evacuate. Your photos bring back those horrible, scary days. Good luck to you and take care.

I have seen the Victoria fires on the news here and was shocked by the loss of life - I just don't understand how these days so many people could have been trapped. I was even more horrified that there are reports that the fires have been stoked up by arsonists - that's disgusting.
