Mega Bushfires - yikes!

Residents throughout north east and south east Victoria are being asked to prepare for a severe fire threat this coming weekend, with 50 fires already burning throughout the region and no respite from the heat until Sunday, with a forecast of possible rain.

The CFA is predicting the possibility of several fire fronts joining up, creating a bushfire which could cover an area of land some 600,000 hectares in size by early next week.
