Who’s responsible for this catastrophic event?
An 11-year-old boy accused of lighting two fires, one of which destroyed 5000 hectares of land near Heatherbrae. He is accused of setting a fire, then fanning the flames with a branch that later developed into the blaze that consumed 5000 hectares of land over several days. bushfire NSW
It is a horrific for many people, business, properties and lives. Some of the victims were interviewed on local televisions and have nothing left because of the fires. Cars, houses and loved ones are gone. Some have suffered health problems as a result of the smoky conditions. Many people were evacuated on the neighbouring town and keep updated on the latest news and events.
The government waived to help the victims and comes on top of recently announced Disaster Recovery Payments of $1000 per adult and $400 per child, made available to victims who have been injured or had their homes damaged or destroyed in the fires. At least this will help families in recovery and start all over again.
