I been watching some of the Bredbo Facebook posts and they seem to confirm the fire spread.


Haha. Though the radio comms has been saying that conditions have been easing off.
Today could have been a lot worse.

The conditions do seem to be easing but the fire seems to still be marching south east

Another day helping the afp with road blocks, door knocking and getting ready for evacuation. A couple of the lads got involved with catching some crooks too.

Coppers said they’ve had a few trouble makers heading south trying to pinch shit.

Chain 'em to an RFS truck.

A lot of radio chatter about the spotting East of the Monaro... Gonna be long night for the nightwatchmen.
Sounds like most will be 'left for tomorrow'.

****, injured firefighter at Big Jack, he's called for an ambulance.

edit: He says it's not serious, knocked his head.
Though he does not sound all that good. Is on his way out of the area.

Linescan shows some established spots on the elevated areas to the East of Colinton. Mapping has a large amount of spotting on the east of the Hwy between Colinton and Bredbo. I haven't yet looked at weather progression in particular wind today, but I can't see them easily rounding up in the hills on the east there, unless weather comes to the party.

Looks as though most of the section between Bredbo and Colinton on the EAST of the highway has been limited in spread.
However EAST of Colinton a few kms and a little NORTH from there are a few large spot fires that are active all around.
Looks to be the main area that has been knocked down is along the highway from Bredbo up toward Michelago. The rest of the fire looks to still have active on most of the perimeter

Pretty much. Burning on west south flanks. May hook up with Good Good and bugtown burnt extremities.

Any news of Rocky PLains / Wyndham / New Buildings?
Haven't been following closely. Not very familiar with area, so very high level - plenty of work, plenty of fire from what I can see. Looks similar to a lot of the big jobs this season in that it's burning large areas of bushland, with communities squeezed in between, where they seem to be focusing the work.

And then this just came out. Watch and Act

Current Situation
  • The Big Jack Mountain fire is burning north of Rocky Hall.
  • Today we are seeing windy conditions, with Very High fire danger forecast for the area.
  • These conditions are increasing fire activity and will make it challenging for firefighters to slow the spread of fire.
  • There are a number of other fires burning in the area.

Ta. A mate has a shack there, and a friend of my +1 has a place there (both Rocky Hall). If they survived the weekend, today may come through.

The staff newsletter for work came out today and had an eye opening story from one of our staff members on the south coast. He's an RFS volunteer along with several other staff members involved with the SES etc. I'm going to seek his permission to put his experience on here tomorrow.

ACT State of Alert update this evening - fire 1.2km from Corin Forest. Crews pulled out. Owner defending, perhaps against advise.

6km from Gordon, yet another evening at Watch and Act. Burnt leaves falling are cool so all still good.

Winds have changed to an unlike direction and further afield (Cooma etc) the wind speed is higher.

Corin Forrest is now at risk
