Devastating Fires in Victoria 8 February 09Posted by Fantastic Four in Australia, Happenings.

25 confirmed dead in the bushfires in Victoria. Towns of Kinglake, Kinglake West, Wandong, St Andrews, Humevale, Arthurs Creek and Bendigo. Firefighters have been unable to get into the fire zones so it’s impossible to say how many more are dead. I read that many were trapped in their cars trying to escape the flames.
It’s a tough time for the Victorians. My thoughts are with those who are injured, have lost their lives or the lives of their loved ones. My heart goes out to everyone out there whose houses are in the danger zone. I send positive energies to the firefighters and wish for their safety as they fight against the scorching wrath of nature.
Apparently, the weather conditions, which are hot, dry and windy, won’t be changing anytime soon.
