    I live in Canberra, and I just saw a burnt out Sprinter on the news! I was horrified!

    Obviously, the lives and property are more important, but I was shocked to see the burnt out sprinter (white)(i think)

    Not sure exactly where it was, but I hope the owner is ok, especially if they are a club member.....

    I wasnt affected personally, but i could see the glow of the fires at night, and at one point, you could barely see outside because the wind blew in heaps of smoke, pretty worrying stuff!!

    A mate lost his investment property in marysville, out of the whole town, 2 houses were left standing.

    Odd thing was, we drove through there late on friday night, seemed as normal as ever. you cant recognise the town now.

    This is definately a black week in Vic's history

    90% of my uni mates live in areas of Vic that have been affected by the fire

    ive heard from all of them except one, its very worrying.

    as of this morning the toll is at 111 and 0ver 750 houses lost

    if they ever catch the arsonists responsible, i believe an acceptable punishment should be a taste of their own medicine, u all know what i mean
