From 1st Sept you need a permit to burn off so of course the last few days of August everyone was burning off. When I went to sleep at 10pm Tuesday after SES I notice an orange glow to the southwest. The next day around noon a fire truck drove past, stopped turned back and into the west neighbours place. I walked down to see and apparently the bonfire from last night restarted and was threatening their house. Two more fire trucks and an hour later they had it under control. I couldn't see too well - but got some information from the RFS website, although the internet was really slow.
