    I'm very sorry to hear about this. I know those bush fires can be pretty intense in Australia. I recall a picture of a fireman holding a water bottle up to a koala because its paws were burnt. I hope your grandparents can make it out of this trouble OK.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    So sorry to here about this, I hope that they can rebuild quickly. I'm sure that the forest will grow back very fast - it has here where the black Saturday bush fires burnt.

    Thanks, everyone. They're very level-headed people and don't seem to be viewing the situation as anything other than a natural disaster. I'm sure everything will be taken care of quickly and smoothly.

    A very sad occurrence. I hope they can and do rebuild. Seeing an ecosystem recover from a fire is an amazing thing and it sounds like your grandmother is up for it. I'm glad they weren't injured and that the insurance money is already in their hands. They seem like wonderful people.
