Banyule flats fire
Thu, 12 Feb 2009 18:13:48 +0800 (WST)
Dear Bill and any others concerned about Banyule Flats:
We have just been up to see and we can tell you that the fire is in Yarra
and not in Banyule Flats. The Boulevard is blocked off by police between
Drive East and Mossman Drive and at 8.30 p.m. flames were clearly visible, from
Mossman Drive bend, burning a fallen tree over towards the Yarra. The fire was
in the grass. So were firemen and appliances. The flames were not very high,
above waist high where I saw them briefly before we turned round and came away.
was a lot of smoke and haze.
It's very bad having a fire in any riverside bush park, but at least it
Banyule Flats whose birding values are much higher.
