    I would hope that the victims of the fire were overcome by smoke and did not have to go through the horror of being burned alive.

    Most don't actually burn to death, usually and fortunately(if you can call it fortunate) the smoke gets to them first. :happysad:

    That's so horrible. I can't believe someone would even ever think of starting a fire, especially in that heat.

    The whole thing is so devastating.

    I did see this picture today which is a little more happy, but the whole situation is just so terrible.

    I live with about 300 Aussie's here and its crazy what is going on down there. They have severe flooding in Queensland and then fires in Victoria. My roomie said that over 750 houses have burned down :(

    I got this email from a coworker the other day. It's in her sister's coworker's backyard. Obviously they live in Australia.
