    Has it come time for the firefighters to fight the fire with fire?

    I'm assuming by burn back you mean fighting fire with fire?

    If so usually they control it by burning some land and putting it out then burning more land and putting it out and trapping the fire within that circle so it can't burn no more. So why haven't they done this?

    Wow, that sounds pretty bad! We here in Florida were put on a very strick water restriction.... It started that you could only water your yards everyother day... this included washing cars. Then it was only once a week watering your grass and not washing your cars.... then it was dont water grass or wash cars at all!! It was bad that for the 4th of July they banned fireworks. I know a couple of people that got big fines of $500.00 for watering there grass!

    It sounds pretty bad the weather over there Kay!! I'll wish for rain for you guys!! And you let me know if it gets really bad tht you dont have drinking water... cuz I'll ship ya some with no problem!! Shipping might be pretty exspensive (lol) but if you guys are even in that big of a need for it I would do what ever I could to send it to ya'll!!

    Thanks Stormyw for the offer but only send water suitable for coffee lol thanks



    and back burns means burning controlled fires to clear out underbrush here...... to try and minimise the risk of big bushfires happening, but I understand "Elvis" has been sighted in the country ;) so we we have to wait, and see, but hopefully we will have a wet, rainy summer, that all of us can complain about :laugh:

    Houses and bushland co-incide in the mountains where the fires are atm and too dry to make the risk of backburning really safe :kay:
