It is evident that these fires have been lit, systematically. Who and why would want to burn country are questions we leave the audience to answer. Fires were lit on the southern boundary of the Trace Line on Friday evening around midnight. The fires were encouraged by easterly winds. In normal circumstances the wind swings to the south and would blow in a westerly direction, burning back onto itself.

Remnant rain forest (monsoon vine thicket) were threatened and the fire did cross the Manari Road just south of James Price Point.

We all fear for the bilbies and their babies but we are hopeful they have survived this holocaust as they live underground in burrows.

However, survival of the bilby population in the aftermath of an environment that has been scorched, with water scarce and habitat depleted of all nourishment is cause for great concern.
