Camp Keen almost cooks! A fire that was deliberately lit in the property next door to us had us worried for a few hours today. Andy called me at work to say he had been asked by the police to evacuate but by the time he got the dogs in the car a fire truck had blocked our driveway. It came very close to our gate and within 50 feet of our chook yard, luckily because of the brigades quick response we only lost our fenceline Andy soon feel back into the roll of firefighter, he was Dept. Captain when we lived in the Blue Mountains. Don sent me this link http://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/dsp_content.cfm?CAT_ID=683 It must have been a slow news day as it was even on the news and Andy had the regional newspaper knock on the door for comments. We have never seen it so dry in these parts and it was only a matter of time before we had a wild fire......we were very lucky and owe a huge thanks to our local brigades.
