Marysville Primary School - totally destroyed along with nearly all of Marysville
The smoke from the fires has even reached as far as New Zealand
What a tale of survival - a house safe amongst the fire
How hot must the fire have been to melt the wheels
People said it was like it was raining fire - this shows you how it did.
These are just some of the photos of the fires that have devasted our area and most of the state. They are still burning. Three of our schools 4 teachers have been affected by the fires. They are safe and their homes are safe - but homes burnt around them. It is so hard to deal with the devastation and the terrifying stories that i continue to hear from people from our school who live amongst the fire affected areas.
Please give to the Red Cross Appeal and pray for the fire fighters who are still fighting to keep lives and properties safe. Pray for those who are grieving for lost families and friends and pray for those who have lost everything they owned.
But also praise God for those who were kept safe in only miraculous circumstances. I can only tell them that an Angel was sent by God protected them and their family as they were inside their home with fire all around but they came out unscathed and their house is ok. But fire was right up to the back door.
And here is my last photos - it was taken from my school crossing this morning. You can see the smoke from the nearby fires.
