    Have been watching this for awhile. I thought it looked more over Beau's way.....thank goodness it's not!

    So it's on the west side of the estuary then Fe??

    BuGGER - just spoke to my sister, she and her eldest daughter are in bunbury at work today but BIL and younger neice are heading back to their property now - the fire is right opposite them, AND BIL has decided he wants to stay and fight it #( Wish i lived closer so i could go and drag them away!!!!!!
    PLEASE everyone....... stay safe, stay only as long as you feel confident and leave as soon as you feel its too close for comfort!!!

    OMG My sisters neighbours place is already up in flames - Brother in law and neice have been kicked out by police and told they are not allowed to stay and defend the house - all they had time to grab was the dogs :(
    I'm absolutey terrified now for everyone down that way PLEASE BE SAFE AND LEAVE!!!!!!!!!!!

    FFS!!!! My brother in law has got his girls out safe so they are with my sister at a friends place but he has gone back in to help fight the fire!!! STUUUUPPPPIIIIDDDDDDDD!!!!! Please anyone down that area - dont go back in and help fight it when you are not properly trained or equipped :(
    My sister is absolutely terrified he wont come out - why do people feel the need to go in and fight when they are not trained to do so???? I'd have run so far and fast its not funny! Nothing could convince me to stay and fight once my family and animals were all out safe!
