All clear for the Mallee

A postcript to my initial post on the fires north and south.
A message from the CFA yesterday, announced - "The final ALL CLEAR has been issued this week for the Mallee fires that started nearly a month ago. Lightning sparked 18 fires on the night of 14 January, and since then more than 110,000 hectares have been burnt". 
Fighting the fires has been hard work for all involved - the firefighters, the allied organisations, the shires, and the communities. While other fires came and captured the news headlines, these communities battled on.

To everyone, thanks for your efforts, and looking forward to All Clears for the other bushfires too.
