I took these yesterday 23rd Feb 07 of a fire in national park about five minutes from my home. Seems it was deliberatley lit. Its still burning today. Lots of loss of wildlife Im afraid





people gather to watch from a local lookout





looking south/east towards town



looking from the beach in town back towards the lookout north/east

reference number google earth typed exact includes a space after the comma

-34.999746, 117.951815







As of yesterday firefighters were hoping this would not jump the channel into emu point holiday area

thanks guys, it has started to rain but notreally heavy enough to do a lot, it burned all the way down to the water line. We looked at the area on google earth and its quite a large area of burned out habitat
