I do feel for all those who have been effected by the fires and who have lost their homes and pets and such. I know I am lucky to not be affected this is partly due to the fact that I don't live near bushland well not that close to bushland, hang on a minute there is bushland only 10-15 minute walk from me bloody hell what am I talking about not living near bushland.
I saw on out local tv channels Facebook page that a 14-year-old boy has been charged with starting a fire at Rutherford yesterday apparently about 1.15pm a fire was discovered in vegetation near a tennis club on the New England Highway.
Firefighters extinguished the blaze, but not before it burned 200 square metres around the club including established trees and fencing.
I don't get why people start fires, young children don't always know what will happen if they start a fire but at 14 this kid should had know and if he hasn't been living under a rock or in cave he would have seen about the fires on telly.
When I would see about the fires I would think of my cousin Noel, who is a firefighter, all firefighters are bloody amazing people they are true heroes as they willingly and knowingly put their lives at risk to help other.
