    1. The houses in the photos were spared, but a block up homes were damaged and one entirely razed to the ground. The wind was very strong that day and the fire jumped randomly over roads, houses – bombing all over. So fortunate to have good emergency services. The firecrews on the ground and also in the air – the helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft pilots really saved the day.
