On a personal note, my brother and my niece had to evacuate their homes during the Cudlee Creek fire in the hills of Adelaide.
The fire came up to their fence lines but was beaten back by the heroic Country Fire Service (CFS) composed largely of volunteers.

The Cudlee Creek fire is still active but under control - for now.

Didn't know where else to post it. Considered the Living Room but it's more of general interest than "Local Interest".

We watch Sky News who showed a picture of where the fires were burning in Australia. There are fires all along the coast around the entire country! Only the very interior of Australia seemed to not be completely consumed by fires. It looked like there was almost nowhere to go to get away from a fire.

Yes, we are Australia had incredible views of the fire, the images were indeed heartbreaking. I hope your family remains safe and their home unburned.

I just received message from koala that this tragedy has now touched her niece's family.

Pictured: Legendary bush pilot, 78, and his surgeon son, 43, who were killed as they fought 'unstoppable' bushfires that smashed Kangaroo Island

Well-known outback pilot Dick Lang and his son, Adelaide surgeon Clayton Lang, have died in the Kangaroo Island bushfire after their car was trapped by flames.

The body of 78-year-old Mr Lang was believed to have been found in their vehicle on Playford Highway at Gosse while his 43-year-old son was found some distance away.

The pair had been out fighting the blaze and were returning to a family property when they became trapped.
