There are times during the very hot season when the bush is very dry, as dry as a tinder-box. A very slight spark can cause a destructive moving brush-fire that travels very, very fast as the flames take hold. The fire rages out of control, the fire-service, using aeroplanes, water-bomb the head of the inferno to try to stop the fire in its tracks.
The flames light up the sky, and we drive away with many other cars racing away from the moving, travelling wall of flame, that makes an incredible picture of the sky on fire.
As the sun sets in all its glory the fire turns night into day.
