Bushfire blog – 9 Dec 2002

Good news! The road north & south of town is now open, but there are still smallish fires burning beside the road in both directions.

There are repair crews everywhere along the highway, fixing power cables & phone lines. The heavy smoke from last night & this morning has dissipated and the major fires are burning several valleys to the north west.

All looks good for the town from now on.
