Sarah, I'm so sorry this happened to your community. Also glad it didn't come close to you. We live in a forest so we worry about fires.
Glad you were safe Sarah, saw a lot of the damage on Carte Blanche last night. My thought and prayers go out to those who lost love ones and pets. Hugs from Maureen
Thank you Maureen. I actually could not watch CB last night. Knysna is mourning
Glad your property was saved. Our hearts and prayers go out to everybody that suffered and lost everything. Hugs from Pretoria.
We were so lucky. We did not even have to evacuate. Some people had to evacuate four times. We have been told that a few fires have started up again.
Sarah, glad you are safe, thanks for the photo. What devastation, yes fires destroy and thank god we have brave firemen, of which my husband was one in Australia before retiring some 12 years ago.. Sandra.
