Hopefully the last fire of this fire-season

in fire •  14 days ago

Shot from the mall where it was looking impressive.

The building closest to the smoke are the government school and public electricity utility buildings and substation.

The fire on this day was luckily not threatening those buildings because there had already been a massive fire earlier there that had left no flammable material behind in the immediate vicinity of that complex.

A shot from further out where you can see smoke rising along a roughly 10 km front.

Hopefully these will be the last, we had some rain earlier this week and that should get some green sprouting up and moisten up the dry grass.

This weeks rains were the start of the rainy season for us. It's simple we get rain in every month of the year with an R in it, so September through till April. By June everything is starting to die back from the cold and dry out and that's when the fires start.

Well I do really hope nobody got hurt from the government school and public electricity utility buildings and substation.

It might look pretty nice of the shape of the smoke but sure deadly.

Hope the coming days does goes very well and great as well :)

do these fires happen every year or just some years?

It is good news that it has rained because it is less likely to fire the dry grass again, besides that there was no significant damage so you could say that everything went well
