For those of you who were able to donate towards the Bushfire fund - my thanks - so far around $100,000,000 has been raised and already we are beginning to get funds distributed to those most affected by the fires.
It is impossible to describe what it is like and luckily I've not been near enough to experience this personally, however these pictures do give some faint idea of the reality of a major fire and I know that they will be with me for a long time to come.

Horrific pictures :(

The one with the Koala makes you think just how many animals and wildlife have been killed or injured because of the fires. Are they under control now?

i feel really sorry for the koala and all the other animals that lost the fight to survive.
Such a terrible tragedy for everyone concerned. :(

HI RICK

BEING A UK FIREFIGHTER FOR 12 YRS I KNOW FIRST HAND THE DEVASTATION A FIRE CAN CAUSE.
MY HEART GOES OUT TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIED & ALL THE OTHERS WHO HAVE BEEN INJURED.
THE FIRE CREWS HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB IN CONTAINING THE FIRES IN SUCH DIFFERCULT CONDITIONS.
IT`S DIFFERCULT TO BELIEVE THAT SOME OF THESE FIRES COULD HAVE BEEN STARTED DILIBERATELY.

Kilmore-Murrundindi fire is still going and not fully under control, plus we're experiencing another hot day so there are a few more outbreaks. There's a 5 hectare one going about 25~30 km from us at the moment - 14 engines attending - no immediate risk to people or property. You do jump when 6 engines go screaming up the road past your front door though!!!
The RSPCA and various Wildlife Associations have set up collection centres and for pets a lost animal register, as soon as access was allowed volunteers were going through all the areas that could be safely accessed in a search for all injured animals pets or wildlife. A number of animal hospitals are now treating those that can be treated and rehabilitated as are veterinary practices where practicable.

Bushfires are so terrible :( My best mate and her boyfriend whos also my mate live in Aus and any time a bush fire breaks out, I get worried. With him being a police officer, he gets called out a few times and worrys me incase anything was to happen to him. My sympathy goes out to every family who has lost someone or their homes in a fire and to all the animals who lose their homes or lives in these fires :(
