ABC Tv reporting 1 house gone in Warrandyte.


Just got a call from my partner.  The paddock next door to her Auntie and uncles Gisbourne property is alight.

I'm hearing that their neighbors house is gone. :'(


Resources being stretched.  Just been listening to Dorren CFA bluing with VicFire.  Dorren were sent to cover Diamond Creek as they are all out and VicFire telling them they must attend a house fire in Templestowe.

It’s a strange new world that we now live in🤔 luckily some things are still predictable, like the size of the campfire when camping with bad Scott😉

We have left home, packed the dogs and family in the cruiser but had to leave the camper behind.
Fingers crossed....

Judging by the radio chatter it was pretty hectic out there today. Thumbs up to all the CFA crews for working their arses off :cup:
