On Tuesday night I posted about a bushfire about five miles away.
Here is a piccie I took this evening.
This one is much closer, about a mile and a half away.
In fact it is burning on the back of one of our neighbour's properties.
Just before dark we had a Rural Fire Service brigade captain drive up to warn us the fire had jumped containment lines and might cut the track between us and the road.
Deb and I have elected to stay.
I think the risk is low here, mainly because the wind is again favourable and our house is quite defensible.
As a bonus the air temperature is falling rapidly tonight.
Still it will mean a sleepless night.
