Significant Bush Fires 2020/21

This thread is predominantly for THIRD ALARM AND ABOVE bush fires however if it is a significant fire (ie threatening homes and businesses)
that is at least second alarm then it will be acceptable.

If it's not one of those things then post it in one of the other, more appropriate areas such as the Minor Fires and Other Incidents or General Fire Discussion threads.

Minor Fires Thread
General Discussion Thread

Please keep the posts to factual information - not rumour, hearsay, possibilities, theories etc. Also keep the information brief and to the point.

Questions about what is going on, who is turning out, why someone isn't turning out etc should be done in the General Fire Discussions thread.
