At last count there were 70 bushfires burning, mostly around Sydney but also in other parts of the state. 30 houses have been destroyed bu no one was killed. After last christmas I didn't think there was anything left to burn.
So far one man has been arrested for arson. He faces 14 years in gaol. The fire he lit is in the army's test rage. Firefighters can't go in because of all the unexploded munitions, many of which are now exploding in the heat.
