    I understand Baw Baw resort has been evacuated as a precautionary measure because of the Aberfeldy fire to its north. @Charlie - tell us what you know.

    Lots of ash apparently, and Melbourne Water quality is going to suffer...

    Yep it’s really gone hard late this arvo!
    Big pyrocumulos, it’s gone around to the north and south of the dam and looks like the south side of the fire could jump the Thomson further south

    Unfortunately Curra, I don’t think there going to contain this one for a while yet? IMO
    Unless it gets a big dump of rain on it which dosent look likely in the short term. Thunderstorms forecast tomorrow which are probably not wanted

    Looks like some rain possibly close to this fire? More lightning as well?
