Sandy Creek area[from Judy D. 0630h]
At midnight there was a red glow on the big hill on our north boundary which proved to be a fire lit all along from the eastern side of that ridge. The [Wallers Road] fire had no time to come right round, and it had not come across [Sandy Creek Road], it was deliberately lit and approaching our NE corner. We had no notification that this would be happening, but being slightly suspicious on these occasions due to long experience, a weather eye was kept. The fire was mostly small and creeping and easily extinguished where it was within reach, and the rest will be done when it is low enough. So the western ridge is now alight.
