This group is for people that live in affected, or live in areas near the affected ones.
Share your stories of terror, and show your support for everyone, together we can make it through these tough times...
Show your support, place (f) at the beginning of your msn display name, and spread the word.
Also, may all those who lost their life in these terrible fires, R.I.P, and anyone that is missing, be found safe, with minimal injuries.
I hope all those with burns have a safe recovery also, and to all the firefighters working day and night to put out these fires, our deepest gratitude to you, without the volunteers for the CFA that we all take for granted, this could have been much much worse, they have done an excellent job on these fires, even with their resources stretched.

If you have any information, please share it, knowledge is power, especially knowledge of small spotfires heading towards homes, if people don't know about these until too late, they might lose everything, including their lives. So please, tell us of anything.
Over 700 houses destroyed.
Current number of confirmed dead - 209 May they rest in peace, and my condolences to their friends/family.
