Birds Burn!!....Ovenden.... 02-05-2011

Water Bombing!!! 1000's of times.... (c) 2011

The overarching news today is of yet more fire on Ovenden Moor, mid afternoon.... not only the moor but apparently part of the plantation as well.... dense yellow, white and black smoke blotted out the sun to the north of the fire..... without doubt mass fatalities at this time of year..... nine images (c) 2011

....... and still she burns.... up on the high moor now as visible from c 6 miles away at 2130hrs tonight..... what will the morrow bring?.... (c) 2011

Agree Howard exceedingly sad and a great loss but the fire service seem to have done a fine job as it at least looks to be under control now....
