Fire in the Hills! Run for your lives!
Heard news early yesterday of a fire at Cherry Gardens that was declared out of control and moving fast.
A neighbour said he could see the big clouds of smoke from his upstairs window, so I took my camera and got photos.
This morning I woke up to a blanket of thick, stinky smoke outside and some was inside too, having come in via the air conditioner overnight, so I turned that off right away.
This morning, after a downgrade overnight, the fire has roared back to life and is heading in the general direction of Bridgewater and the South Eastern Freeway.
Gulp! My daughter and her family live close to that area!
I texted her this morning and learned they have been ready to evacuate since yesterday but haven't left yet. They will, of course, if they have to.
Damn, here come the tears.
