400,000 ha burnt... and still blazing...

It's been burning since New Years...
not long ago it had burnt out 350,000 ha...

It was a bit worrying how close it came in the last couple of days to Nanna's place... it has now burnt out about 400,ooo ha and is burning on roughly a 600km front, still blazing away. That is a lot of land completely cooked, and animals along the way. Nanna won't be going home until the weekend at the earliest. Stay safe to all those working in any way to do with the fire.

The fire is still not controlled and has burnt through more than 400,000ha on a perimeter of around 600km.
From the FESA website.

Still burning.

This is so sad. So glad your Nanna is ok.
