*Dreaded sight in Country* - Melton, Vic. by 

A picture that no-one let alone farmers want to see in their area

This fortunately was a Tyre dump on fire and under control with Fire Trucks in attendance


DEDICATED to all the brave men & women including my own family who have ridden on the back of a water truck up & down hills and flat lands to fight country fires
Also to the women who have stood for hours making sandwiches & large containers of tea and coffee to feed them

  • That is close to where I used to live on the farm, someone would have been to check it out and all firetrucks would be at the ready…Shirley

    It must be so frightening to see even the tiniest fire when the grasses are so dry

  • We always had a very dry summer in the flat areas, brings back a lot of memories for me, seeing my girls on the back of trucks manning the hoses…. Shirley

    sigh sad sight but you know i believe that all things are recycled …even us…..and have a purpose fire destroys but it also brings life, at least when all is said and done and fires have all burnt out and quit new forests will have the chance to grow….

  • Fires were burning well before population and they cleaned the land and regrowth started and that is so true Lorel…Shirley

    We are being told that large wildfires will become more common as a result of climate change. USA is having a bad year already. Southern California was just on the news. Sad and frightening!

  • Hello Jade, saw them on TV. we have a beautiful sunny day here, just hope that spring is not going to be too hot, need some more rain. Shirley

    If it wasn’t so scary, the irony would be funny. Well composed.

  • Thank you Lisa, it is amazing how sometimes some smart young folk out touring see a sign like this and decide to cause some damage. Shirley
