I just took a quick drive around as far as I could….
Roads are still blocked so I couldn’t get too close, plenty of smoke, not many flames to be seen, but this is what I got;
Time now is 9pm. I’m off to get a hour or so sleep. I want to be awake for when it gets dark. The interesting time is coming up, as the air crew have to stop at sundown, it’s too dangerous, so the ground grew have to fight the fires. But Rose Valley, from what I have heard is too far in to be fought from the road, there’s no access. Only the helicopters have been going in.
One question I do have, if anyone can answer me, is why have the bombers not been used? Surely there25 odd tons of water, every 15 mins or so would do some good? I hope to have the answer soon.
Stay safe, good luck to the firemen and support staff and I’ll be back shortly.
