Fire Warning Mt Walker, Zig Zag Lithgow 11/02/17

Just received an automated phone call recommending evacuating the area.

If you have friends camping in the Lithgow area please let them know of the danger. Fire is currently under control between Rydal & Tarana but we are experiencing high winds at the moment.
Yes I did! Built with spanners not chop sticks!

Thanks for the heads up Clarkey. I hope anyone in the area had sufficient warning (& sense) to take all the appropriate precautions & not to make things more difficult for the poor sods trying to contain the fire & prevent any injuries or loss of life & property! Aren't we all glad they do such a great job under extremely difficult circumstances! :thumb:
