Bushfire out of Control in Sydney's North

Around 50 firefighters are battling a bushfire burning out of control near properties in Sydney's north.



NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) said the 200-hectare fire was burning at Lovett Bay in the Ku-ring-gai national park.
An RFS spokesman told AAP shortly before 10.30am local time (12.30pm NZT) on Saturday the fire was burning near properties but was not a direct threat to any of them.

He said there were no mandatory evacuations being carried out, but campers at The Basin camping ground in the national park had been advised to leave.
They are being transported out by ferry because West Head Road is closed, he said.
The cause of the fire is unknown.
Motorists were being advised to avoid the area.
On its website, the RFS said firefighters are working to establish containment lines.
Smoke is impacting Terrey Hills, the northern beaches and north shore.

'Very, very challenging' fire day in NSW

It comes after what firefighters described as a "very, very, challenging" day in New South Wales, where two properties were destroyed, a property owner hospitalised and several firefighters collapsed after battling bushfires in scorching temperatures yesterday.
The number of total fires burning in NSW rose to 120 on Friday after a day of intense heat and gusts of up to 90km/h fanned the flames of existing fires and sparked new blazes.
Twenty-six of those were uncontained as of 11pm local time on Friday (1am on Saturday NZT).
"It's been a really, really challenging day for firefighters across the state," an RFS spokeswoman told AAP.
"It didn't get into catastrophic, but it was up at the high end of extreme in a number of places.
"And while the cool change will certainly provide some relief, we've got many large bushfires burning that are not going to be wrapped up just because the temperatures drop."

Disaster struck in the Bega Valley on Friday evening after a new bushfire west of Merimbula destroyed two properties and two sheds in the Millingandi area.
It brings to 53 the number of properties destroyed in the devastating NSW fires this year.
That fire crossed the Princes Highway on Friday afternoon and was threatening more properties between Wolumla and Millingandi, with firefighters working desperately thorough the night to contain it, the RFS said.
At Nowra, a rural property owner was taken to hospital after an "erratic" fire at Barringella Creek swept through a farm and destroyed a shed on the town's outskirts.
The bushfire, burning 12km southwest of Nowra, was downgraded to `watch and act' on Friday, but there were still concerns some properties could be at risk if the wind changed.

Temperatures across the state were well into the 40s, sparking a number of blazes, including a fast moving grassfire at Boorowa, east of Young.
Fears the town of 1000 people would come under threat were assuaged when the fire line closest to it was contained.
However, it then changed direction and was threatening properties at Douglas Gap and Campbellfields roads.

In Sydney, which recorded its hottest-ever temperature of 45.8C, a fire broke out in the Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park, sending smoke and burning embers across the northern suburbs.
Firefighters were expected to work through the night to protect properties in the area.
Meanwhile, fires in Campbelltown and Marsden Park in the west were contained relatively quickly.
The state's most damaging blaze in the Warrumbungle National Park west of Coonabarabran continued unabated throughout the day, with more than 170 firefighters battling the 46,000-hectare fire.
Also of concern was a fire started by a torched car near Cessnock, in the Hunter region, which caused the evacuation of some residents.
Rain brought some relief to conditions there on Friday night, but it also put paid to firefighters' backburning efforts.

A number of firefighters collapsed as they worked to protect homes from blazes in "furnace-like" conditions.
"We're having fires popping up all over the state," RFS Deputy Commissioner Rob Rogers said.
"We've had a number of firefighters collapse with heat exhaustion.
"It's been incredibly hot for them."

The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) was predicting a cool change for much of NSW over the weekend, bringing much lower temperatures and a strong chance of rain.
"It's going to bring the fire danger ratings right down," a BoM spokesman said.


Massive fire threatens Victorian town

Meanwhile, a massive fire burning in Victoria's east is headed towards Licola, but authorities say the tiny town is not under immediate threat.
Benign weather overnight has slowed the 50,000-hectare fire with the main concern now Licola, which has been cut off and where about 10 residents and 30 firefighters remain.
The fire, which has destroyed about nine homes, is travelling northeast with a chance it will impact the town.
"Licola is now really in the path of the fire under the south-westerly winds we're now experiencing," CFA state duty officer Gary Weir told Fairfax Radio on Saturday morning.
"The fire's not doing much at the moment but it will probably ultimately move into Licola, hopefully not too fiercely."
A State Control Centre spokeswoman said the edge of the slow-moving fire was about 15km from the town but it was not under immediate threat.

Fire Services Commissioner Craig Lapsley said additional air resources had been placed on standby to help fight the Gippsland fires, with the Elvis aircrane out of action due to a mechanical fault.
"The slightly cooler conditions across the state, and short flight times, have allowed us to place additional resources on standby for the Gippsland fires," Lapsley said in a statement on Saturday.
"We will monitor the situation, including lightning strikes that occurred in the northeast overnight, before determining where and when the additional resources will be deployed."
There are 14 aircraft, 70 trucks and more than 270 personnel currently working on the Gippsland fires.

Intense wild fires, or bush fires as they are called in Australia, are burning out of control across southeast Australia with authorities describing the condition as “catastrophic.” The huge fires were easily visible from the International Space Station on Tuesday and onboard, Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has been watching from above.

See more of his images below:




Officials say more than 130 fires, many uncontained, are burning in the heavily populated New South Wales state, where dry conditions are fueling the fires as temperatures reached 45 degrees and wind gusts reached more than 100 kilometers per hour.

In Tasmania, an island south of Australia, rescue officials are still trying to locate around 100 residents who have been missing after a fire tore through a village, destroying dozens of homes. You can see images from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite that were taken on January 7, 2013.

Bushfire Arsonists to be Tracked with GPS
  • AAP 20 January , 2013

WEST Australian authorities will have the power to fit GPS tracking devices on more dangerous criminals, including bushfire arsonists, under new legal guidelines proposed by the state government.

With serious sex offenders set to be tracked with GPS units from March, Attorney-General Michael Mischin and Corrective Services Minister Murray Cowper have revealed plans to introduce a new "serious violent offender" category.
This will allow the courts to order other offenders to be monitored electronically, with domestic violent offenders to fall into the serious offender category, which would be an Australian first.
Mr Mischin said cabinet had approved new laws to enable courts to order serious offenders to be fitted with GPS
"I have commenced drafting new laws to allow courts, in appropriate cases, to order repeat domestic violence offenders be fitted with a GPS device," he said.

"In addition, Western Australia has the highest incidence of suspicious and deliberately lit bushfires in the nation, with arson estimated to account for at least 50 per cent of all bushfires state-wide.
"By allowing courts to order GPS devices to be fitted to serial arsonists, authorities can detect when these offenders approach exclusions zones, such as high-risk bushfire areas or the location of their previous offences."

The state's Prisoners Review Board, which decides on parole, would also be granted the power to order someone being released from jail to be monitored electronically.
The monitoring device for serious offenders or parolees would be fitted on an offender's wrist or ankle, allowing them to be tracked 24 hours a day.

"If they breach their conditions or try to tamper with the device, an alarm will be activated and the offender will risk being sent back to jail," Mr Cowper said.

Yes it is very hot down here. N/W Victoria. But S/E Victoria is only a stone throw away and it is also hot there. We have Fires up the road (200 km radius) and it is smokey today. 40c is 100f. Out side workers in Government sectors don't have to go out side to work when the temp is over 37c. We have been drinking lots of water and I shaved the poor dogs, just to keep them cool. I have not been going to bed till early hours of the morning because it is just to hot.

Sounds like you need lots of rain BaZZa. I hope it rains & cools down for you soon.

Here in Tennessee we have had plenty & too much rain @ times & of course colder temps. We even had a little snow a few days ago.

I Know what you mean Baz, last weeek we had out of controll fire, 4 days it took to put out only few Ks away (couple miles) and I have never seen a blood red sky during the day before, luckily no houses or people were lost but it was really e wry being so close. Its a shame I didn't have my camera at home because words can't describe what it was like.

Its now 3am here in Queensland and trying to sleep in bed is impossible as I never stop sweating but instead find myself falling asleep sitting up,like drifting out of conscious and back again.

Now we have a low forming of the eastern coast forming into a cyclone so who knows whats next?

How some grandchildren survived.



and the government had to change the heat colouring from the 60's as new high temps have broken the record, which I'll add in my own words here as not in video ,,, the road in some places have been melting meaning when you try and drive down the street you tyres leave marks on the road from where they have peeled off the bitumen and stick to ya tyres, which is what I need at the moment as I need new ones


PS. the youtube tag never works for me
PPS. Lucky one of us old blokes know what to do
