    It still is very nasty here, fortunately for us we are South of the fire and with the winds being Southerly has blown it up the coastal belt away from us. We could hear it roaring in the distance . Twelve homes gone but thankfully no lives lost. Three kids are "Assisting police with their investigations"......
