Smoke Plumes from West Melton Scrub Fire

January 11, 2013


I was out for a walk at lunchtime when I noticed a lot of smoke rising up. It kept getting bigger so I decided it had to be photographed… It wasn’t until I watched the news tonight that I learned it was from a scrub fire that took hold in West Melton today. That’s the second fire we’ve had this week – as we’re getting temperatures in the high 20’s with strong hot winds. Nothing compared to what Australians are having to deal with at the moment though.
