Exclamation Brush Fires in Aussieland!

Quote:
Weary firefighters and rescuers pulled the remains of dozens of people from charred buildings on Monday as the toll from Australia's deadliest bushfires rose to 171, police said.

"Everybody's gone. Everybody's gone. Everybody. Their houses are gone. They're all dead in the houses there. Everybody's dead," cried survivor Christopher Harvey as he walked through the town of Kinglake, where most people were killed.

A Victoria state police spokesman told Reuters by telephone late on Monday the toll had risen to 171 from about 135 hours earlier. He said the toll would almost certainly rise further.


Banman are you ok?

He's in Brisbane I think...

BTW the toll was 181 as of this morning. They suspect it will go well above 200.

No disrespect, but I don't understand how this fire is killing so many people. Why don't they get in their cars and drive the **** to safety. I'm probably missing something though.

The fires move incredibly fast. The are wind driven, and combined with the drought, the heat and the topography, people get trapped.
