It had been like this for a number of days. The smoke from the fires in the hills was being driver towards us by the prevailing winds.
|Fire in the North West. In the morning we could see the smoke clouds from two distinct fire fronts.|
|Smoke to the South.|
|Smoke to the South West.|
|Elvis flies directly overhead. This magnificent machine carries about 10,000 liters of water. A neighbor later told me that she was also watching it..|
|Elvis is on its way. The neighbor later told me that in less than a minute it came back empty.|
|The view up the street. Just before the fire storm. Remember that this is the middle of the afternoon.|
|Up the same street minutes later. I'm still not sure exactly what it is that I can see burning.|
|Down the street. The fire is of a house alight 5 doors down.|
|Eppalock Street. This looks out towards 5 houses. None of them are standing.|
|This is the house to the immediate left of where the above picture was taken.|
|Two houses down the street.|
|Rescuers and Helpers moved in to put out spot fires.|
|There was plenty of work to do.|
