Significant Bush Fires 2015/16

Post by Zebedee »

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 - http://warsug.info/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=12486
General Discussion Thread - http://warsug.info/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5381

Remember also that quoting others has been disabled in this thread and **WILL NOT WORK**, nor will the BBCode mark-ups..

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.

Channel 10 news had zero reports of any fires, disgusting.

Currently 3 Emergency Warnings in place see DFES alerts pages for info (Ellenbrook, Shire of Chittering and Toodyay). Listening to radios there have been some very close calls with properties already.

Time to get back to work.
