There was a drunk driver in a Ute, whom I reported. We were deeply concerned that he was heading along Mittagang Rd towards town. I sincerely hope it wasn’t him.

Why is the web site Fires Near Me showing a fire at Ando as out of control if you have no fires within Snowy Monaro. Does Ando belong to another district?

Roberto Dede John Downing I told you I could smell smoke
