Gearys Gap fire

Kerces 6 January 2008 7

Yesterday’s fire beside the Federal Highway near Lake George is now under control and inside containment lines.

One northbound lane of the highway is closed and will probably remain so at least for the rest of today. There is burning timber just beside the road and some possibility of rocks falling.

The rough terrain in the area is making it difficult for firefighters to reacht he core fo the fire and it may not be completely blacked out for a couple of days.

Fresh crews went in this morning and at 7.30am there were 8 units plus crews working on the fire.

Actually it happened about 500m north of the Wheatley VC rest area on the other side of the road.

Who wants to bet the fire was caused by yet another loser chucking a cigarette butt out the car window?

Definition of man hug – arms around each others shoulders, genitals as far away from each other as possible.

Big man hugs to all these fine and brave fellows and fellettes who have balls much bigger than mine.

I believe they are conducting backburns early this morning given the extreme conditions we are going to experience this arvo.

We salute you lads.
