Some shots of the scrub fire across the valley from my place yesterday (brief and slightly out of date story here). Compared to some of the big fires on the same slopes I remember from my youth this one was pretty small (although probably plenty big enough for those whose assets were threatened), but still the closest and most visible scrub fire we have had for a while.

My helicopter likes to hide in shrubbery (with apologies to the authors of "My cat likes to hide in boxes" (link)).
Uplifting a monsoon bucket (link) to give the Rural Fire Service team on the hill a hand.

The yellow dots on the right are the firefighters helmets.

Aftermath with the fire out this afternoon.
