TUESDAY THE 8TH (PART 3)
So, thankfully, nothing became volatile in Bundanoon. It seems state-wide there were no deaths. There wasn't a lot of property damage either. Early yesterday evening, I spoke to a neighbour who has been here his whole life. He said he wasn't worried by the 'catastrophic' level. The time a fire really came close to town was in '65. Flames got to between the bottom of Constitution Hill and Morton National Park. Apparently, Wingello was wiped out then. LJ, January 9 2013.
