Sad news from Port Lincoln today. Yesterday we had a bush fire threaten the outskirts of Port Lincoln during a Catastrophic Fire danger day (FDI 100+). Strong, hot North winds made fighting the fire impossible and a wind change made things a lot worse. 12 homes were lost, countless sheds and rural properties have been destroyed... but thankfully, no lives were lost but it's not going to be a merry Christmas for some families this year.
Below is a video showing what's left of the Lower Eyre Peninsula ARC clubrooms.
