Today is possibly going to be the worst ‘Bush Fire’ (Wild Fire) day in Sydney’s history.
Extreme weather conditions are expected which could fan 3 existing enormous fire fronts (2 of these have merged) with wind gusts up to 100kph and temperatures close to 40 deg C.
More than 200 homes in the Blue Mountains have already been destroyed with similar numbers seriously damaged.
Luckily there has been only one life lost.
We know of two people who have lost their homes.
Our nephew had a very close call with his house. Police cordoned off his street as it was too dangerous to get near his house from work. Luckily a neighbour was home and doused a fire at his house saving it.
59 fires have broken out throught the State of New South Wales, 19 of these are out of control.
Our thoughts go out to all those who have lost their homes and all their possessions.
