    This is my state in Australia with the current bushfires

    This is my state in Australia with the current bushfires.....today at one stage this afternoon there was 5 fires going all within 5 to 10 mins away closet was only 3 kilometres or 1.8 miles... from me......Thankfully they were contained and put out quickly.....l was woken this morning with the sound of the American fire water bombers (sky crane)going over my house.........every year our government hires the water bombers to come over and help with any fires.........One of the fires is at a power station and it got under ground and is burning the coal open cut mine which powers the station ....... 6 of the substations have been closed down ...so there is only 2 running

                    I know how scary this can be. Three years ago we had a huge forest fire that came within 10 miles of us, so much further than for you. It was close enough. That fire consumed 65,000 acres, or an area 16 miles wide and 20 miles long. Over 1,600 homes were destroyed. We had gone to a bigger town to grocery shop, and by the time I came out, the fire had crossed the highway we had just come into town on, and we couldn't get home without going miles out of the way, which we did.

                      OMG!!! We have big brushfire here in the hills surrounding LA & they are terrifying!!
                      Praying they get them contained soon.

                      May the road rise up to meet you...
                      May the wind be always at your back...
                      May you be in Heaven a half hour before the Devil knows you're dead...

                        Oh my! I would be absolutely terrified. I can handle tornados but fires, I don't know. Stay safe.

                              Lisa I have been following this on the news. (BBC has the best reporting here) How awful for you, please stay safe and I'm sure you'll stay aware of alerts. Prayers for all in your country who have experienced such devasting losses and for the safety of all.
