Bendora Fire Saturday 11th January 2003


Flareup along Chalet Road


As the Bendora Fire moved further upslope, drier fuels would have been encountered. Here, tankers from Jerrabomberra and Parks brigades holding the southern flank along Chalet Road cool down a strong flare-up in flashy fuels.

with his camera, you knew things
were about to get interesting...”
