Our Perfect Weather Has Brought A Bushfire

Friday 10th May, 2013

This perfect weather is still continuing but with it has come a bushfire that is burning rather close to the city.  It started yesterday afternoon and is burning in some inaccessible terrain at Cherryville in the Adelaide Hills.

This morning the CFS warned the residents close to where this fire is burning, ie Cherryville, Basket Range and Marble Hill to start putting their bushfire survival plan into use and think about leaving their properties before it is too late.  They are expecting wind changes later on today which could make this fire worse.

This is something we expect at the height of Summer, not now when Winter is just a few weeks away.  We just hope that the CFS and all firefighters can get on top of this fire before any property is lost.

Update......unfortunately a house and shed has been destroyed by the fire.   It doesn't sound as if the firefighters have the upper hand in containing this fire.  Tomorrow evening we are expecting a cooler change and some rain.  Let's pray that no other property is lost in the mean time.

  1. These photos are chilling. I'm praying that the fire is under control and out soon and that no lives are lost. Be safe my friend. Hugs, Edna B.
