i can remember as a kid there was one ridiculous fire that spread from the south coast up into the far southern outskirts of sydney ... it reached as far as my uncle's street in oyster bay and was literally 10 or so houses away from his, but they contained it before it reached further ... would have been 94/95 ... i live about 30 mins from oyster bay and there's a river seperating the shire from the district so it wouldn't have spread near me but i can remember the air being a thick, haze and stinking of smoke bad and fire embers were floating in the air and the entire horizon looking south from the hill in my street was pitch black

bush fires are fucking mental

this is what i speak of

1994 Eastern seaboard fires

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search
The 1994 Eastern seaboard fires were bushfires in New South Wales, Australia between 27 December 1993 and 16 January 1994 were widespread along the NSW coast from Bega to the Queensland border and inland as far as Bathurst. Over 80 separate fires encouraged by extreme hot dry and windy conditions threatened many areas including the major cities of Newcastle and Sydney. The fires killed four people and burnt out over 8,000 square kilometres. They destroyed 225 homes, most in southern Sydney suburbs of Jannali and Como West. Como West Public School was destroyed.
These fires generated a large amount of media coverage internationally. Unlike earlier fires, several of which caused much more damage, they entered a major city, as the latter Black Christmas and 2003 Canberra bushfires would too. Also this is the only time a major city, Sydney, been threatened with total isolation due to fire. At the peak of the fires only the Hume Highway to the southwest remained open, all other road and rail routes out of Sydney were closed. Residents of the entire metropolitan area of Sydney had to contend with ash raining down on them, and the sky remained a blazen orange for days afterwards.


jannali is like, 5 minutes on a train from me and that's how close it got ... bit further if you drive because you have to go out of your way
