Any word yet on the cause?
Any fireballs sighted in your area? I keep expecting one of these to start a fire.

That's a looooooong stretch of area affected by fire. This is a great opportunity for your government to make use of the banquet beer Fosters.

Stay safe bella, and good luck to you and yours.

we have very high winds and extremely low humidity.

I have now lost count of the amount of houses on fire.

The fire broke out near an army range on Wednesday afternoon, with explosions and detonations making it too dangerous to send in firefighters and aircraft.

Which army range?
Sounds like OZ is under fire, or attack, any UFO's around?

ufo's lol....we have big fires here every couple of years or is hot dry and really windy...and there are a lot of trees.....the damned greenies complain so there is not a great deal of back burning going on so the scrub builds and builds and hey presto we get conditions like this and it all burns....I am a little further up in the gold coast region and if we do not get rain soon we will be burning like the blue mountains are now...scary stuff when you see it

Current temperature in Sydney is 32c (89.6f) though feels hotter, with 60-90km wind gusts (strong where I am, soooo noisy)

Coupled with the dry humid conditions we've seen over the past month ... eh.

Southerly coming through later hopefully though.

Stay safe all.

wow, yep.

Sky is full of smoke all the way down south here

posted on Oct, 17 2013 @ 12:13 AM
Just south of Wollongong, which is south west of Candem, so were almost under the smoke blowing out to sea. They're apparently grass fires, so not sure if we'll see any embers like we have before from fires behind, or coming over the escarpment. Would post an image, but I have no idea. More a lurker.

This is the sky from my place and we are a long way from the fires

A few people here at work have been affected. One left work 3 hours ago and is still not home - there are fires near Bargo I believe. Started at a mine or something - I don't know the exact details.

The other person saw on the map that a fire was within a few streets from his house in the Blue Mountains. Luckily, his wife managed to get back there and grab their pet dog. They're both now stuck somewhere trying to get to a relative's house.

Very bad conditions here.

The wind is just crazy.
