My buddy, Mendo from across the lake, came home from a "mission" in town on Saturday afternoon to find a brush fire at his place. Seems his neighbour, insert your own derogatory term here, was burning brush on a very dry, windy morning, and he left the fire unattended for a while. The results as seen from the photos above could have been a lot worse if Mendo hadn't returned home when he did. The fire department had to be called to put out the fire. Although the fire kept low to the ground, it burned along the ground very quickly and could have threatened a lot more of the bush and the nearby houses without the stopping power of the fire department. The upside is the burnt area will be very green and happy with new growth over the next few weeks.
