I woke up on Monday to the smell of smoke, and the thump of helicopters. A quick search online and I spotted the problem, a bushfire had been started in Kings Park, around 3 blocks away from the house. After sending a message to a friend on the other side of the park I checked where the fire was on Sky News and found out that it was actually heading towards the house.
I woke my lovely girlfriend, and threw some supplies in the back of her Land Rover and then we had the word come through that the fire was contained. It smouldered away for a couple more days, but didn’t cause any more problems. I cannot thank enough the pilots of the helibombers, who were doing an amazing job.
