    Kimaley, hope you and Neddies are ok. I cant come and help as I just had operation, but if you need a place for horses let me know and I will call our tenants.

    Stay safe all.

    No one can get hold of Kimaley atm, which is a bit scary. I dont think the fire is in her immediate area, but still its scary.
  7. Mum just rang and said its rather big. They have told to leave brigadoon and head there.

    stay safe everyone

    Knowing Bay, she will be out helping others. I just read the FESA report for this, so yes, not in Kimaley's area.

    Hoping other stockies in the area are safe and well and have all the help they need.

    I think she's away for the weekend :( Maybe if someone has Kim's number they could call her?

    Yeah people have been trying to call her, but she doesnt appear to be answering her phone.

    I am up hill from it and it is very nasty and seems to be getting worse by the second. The wind does not help. It is on the border of Kelmscott / Roleystone so those of us further up the hill should be ok given the wind is from the East. No guarantees of course. We are just keeping an eye on it and staying close to home. The wind is just so dreadful I knew it would be a bad day for fires but this is ridiculous. Good luck to everyone.

    My mum has just phoned, she has been told to evacuate (she backs onto Clifton Hills primary).

    She has been here all morning helping me with the house, thank god she went home when she did, she is bringing their dog here.

    Her neighbour is staying to defend his house :(

    Hope everyone stays safe.
