Just in case anyone thinks a grass fire cannot be all that bad, have a look at 
the photo in this newspaper report URL:

The little dot fleeing to the right of the flames is a firefighter.  The photo 
was taken, if I remember correctly by Sue Lamb, wife of a firefighter.  Our 
firefighting costs have gone through the roof in the last few years, simply 
because of gamba grass.
