Watching the evening news last night i was horrified to see the
devastation left after the bush fire through the Pilliga Scrub in northern

Has anyone any details of the fires extent?  All I could make out was
that it flared along a 150 km front.  Was the area around the salt caves
spared?  Which species are the most likely to have perished?
