Thanks to the quick response of Tuggerah Lakes Highway Patrol and alocal member calling it in we were on scene in minutes and stopped things before it had taken hold too far into the bush.
Most excellent team-work and suppression folks, really nice job.
Bucketty 1 was out to Payne's Crossing on property protection this afternoon with Wollombi 1A and Group 8. A nice afternoon tea on the verandah on a mountain side overlooking water-bombing ops followed by a helter-skelter drive out down hairpins like this - praise be to Stan ! Thanks also to DaveF, JohnM, Steve & Meredith for the turn-out and adventures.

Local smoke can be expected from fires being contained to the SE in Yarramalong/Ravensdale and NW in Howes Valley by RFS & NPWS firefighters.
Fire danger has been downgraded to HIGH for Saturday as weather change brings some cooler conditions and hopefully some respite for the crews out there.
