I have never seen anything like this before, it is like a war zone in the middle of town.
There is literally "bush fires" burning in and around the township.
All of our Fire trucks were at another fire 1/2 an hour away so it felt like so long for backup to arrive.

SES and DES have taken over so time for a rest. I think that everything is fairly much under control but can't turn our backs.

I have never seen so many Police and Emergency truck, Utes, cars, etc, etc.
And got to break in the brand new Level 2 Incident Room, that has just been finished.



How is SA going?????

^^^  NOW yes

But most of today was 40+ I think, and the horizons were hazy with dust and smoke - no idea what's actually happened out there though.  At one stage this morning I could barely see the hills from the city.

Mate, this has been an experience and a half. Seen plenty of Bush fires and scrub fires with the odd house fire here and there but this was unreal,
Just glad I fix radios and Comms equipment, scary shit watching the guys on the front.

Full on Bush fires raging in the centre of town almost, with house fires going as well. And not all from the bush fires. Most of Bendigo was cut off and most of the main roads closed as well. The Towns Rubbish tip has gone up as well, I reckon it will take weeks to make sure it in out totally.

But it was fun driving around putting the Bells and whistles on.

Few hours break, then it's spot fire watch.
