It was amazing. In Macedon, brick houses exploded, while a couple of wooden houses still stood. The local publican saved a lot of lives- Had people laying on the floor of the pub, covered with wet blankets and towels. The pets had to stay outside in vehicles and all died of suffocation. The people survived. The ones who stayed and jumped into their pools and water tanks died. We were up a firebreak, felling trees and cutting scrub when we were called on the radio and told to get out NOW. We made it out, the unit behind us didn't. Five good men cooked. Fuck, I hate fire. And I hate the little cnuts who light them.
