wow 3 in a row!

Today is the third fire I've watched in 24 hours.

Balga Fire 2007 01 27 13:30hrs

This fire in Balga around Mirrabooka Ave and the highway was quickly brought under control by two water bomber choppers but provided some spectacle while it lasted. Once again I was at the scene without a camera to record it, but the mobile phone cam did a semi-passable job of it.

There appears to be no property damage or injury, several roads in the vicinity were temporarily closed to prevent accidents, and the strong breeze seems to have helped blow this particular blaze out rather than fan it, possibly because it was confined to a strip of bushland between major roads.
