Just a quick up date.
We have now put a secure back burn line in from the head of Melon Creek all the way back down to Upper MacDonald River. (Look it up on a map.) This fire is now moving back slowly towards the main fire coming from Howes Swamp.
Hopefully this will make the fire coming from Howes Swamp safe given the predicted weather for later today and then tomorrow with high temperatures and winds forecast. Fingers crossed.
For those who are asking how they can help. Food, cakes, drinks etc are always welcome at the shed, as we are doing 12 hours shifts (14 hours in reality).
