The smokes just reached Cootralantra . Sad after such a nice day. Thanks for the update!

I’m pretty sure everyone is doing the very best they can & then they go do some more. With the erratic weather conditions that we experienced yesterday & the tragic loss of the crew & plane there may not have been the time or resources. This fire is horrendous & has been ongoing for some time...maybe leaving your daughter at home alone was not the best choice BUT luckily those dedicated firies went out & got your daughter who was left home alone.

I must say that it is disappointing that we are sent to the website for first call information but it is well behind here. Not everyone knows about looking here, splitting resources could be dangerous. I know that people are exhausted but the approved website should get updated first.

PLEASE add these circulars to the Fires Near Me App as "More Information" link. It would be beneficial for all community members out here to know when we go to Watch and Act - where in the massive fire that is Good Good, residents need to be Alert - give us an address or a landmark so we know where the fire front is up to please.

Guys we have snowy mountain fires all around us and will probably for months.. go to weather everyday check direction and strength of wind.. check fires near me and make your own calculated estimate of potential dangers daily

Please keep the information update here and on fires near me. It was disappointing to see that properties were impacted yesterday and yet we never got to an emergency alert level. People need to be alerted when the fire activity increases.

Now that the fire has gone to Watch and Act - will this information be updated?

Was any property lost on Countergany rd?

Why is this detail not available on the Good Good Alert on the Fires Near me App. We really need more detailed updates please. I notice the Badja Fires and Creewah fires both have links to much more detailed information...
