Burnt Out Wrecks After The Bush Fires

burnt out wrecks at Darlimurla

We drove through Mirboo North, Darlimurla and Boolarra after the devastating bush fires in February 2009.

These car wrecks and masses of other rubbish were stored close to a fibro clad home in dense bushland at Darlimurla.

Miraculously, the home was only slightly burnt along the carport. You have to wonder if the owners had any thought about the risk of fire to their property!

Credit must go to the fire fighters who worked tirelessly to save these dwellings, no matter how little they had prepared for such an event.

Each summer we are warned throut the media to prepare our properties for fire…the climate and geography in Australia contribute…the risks of bush fire are higher than in any other country…and our ‘tree-change’ lifestyle choices to build in dense bushland and at the end of narrow tracks, make it even more dangerous!
