Recently we had to evacuate my wifes horse from the farm where it is normally agisted. Lightning started multiple bushfires in the hills around the property. The entire area around the farm has been affected by the fires. But thanks to the outstanding work of the predominantly volunteer firefighters, and the firefighting helicopter teams no lives were lost in the fires. Some fires continue to burn, although at a greater distance now. Bridlewood Farm where we agist lost some fencing but no buildings, indeed even the Tigersnake that lives near the driveway survived. Life is gradually getting back to normal.

Smoke plume from the western edge of the fires, about 24 hours after they started, from around 10km away

Burnt hillside and roadside with unaffected pasture in between. If you look closely you can see that all of the roadside fencing is damaged.

Good nobody got hurt. Great that the horse is safe as well.

Sad event but you captured wonderful photos.

Unfortunately, although nobody was lost in the fires as such, a German dressage champion was injured rescuing someone else's horses after saving her own. As far as I know she remains in a very serious condition in ICU.
