A Blaze

Oh dear. The fire seemed closer and last night I wasn't able to find out what structure was alight. This morning it is being reported that a Buddhist temple in Springvale South has been destroyed by fire.

  1. People can be warned about floods and hurricanes, but with fires there are no warnings :(

  2. That is so sad. It was a lovely building. It must have been fierce for you to see it all the way in the big smoke.

    1. Caro, I was a little surprised it was so far away. I knew it was bad and more than a house fire.

  4. Oh yes, it's dreadful. All those people's ashes there too, all gone. Saw that there was a fire on Twitter yesterday. Very sad.

    1. Margaret, there now does seem some hope that ashes may have survived. As one woman put it, it feels like my father has died a second time.

    2. Darla, thankfully it seems the ashes in urns are intact.

  6. That's a shame. There's a building on the left-hand side of your photo that also seems to be on fire, but I suspect that's just a reflection of the sun!

    1. TP, in our early days here I nearly bought a telescope but for whatever reason I didn't. The best way to really see something in the view is to zoom in with the proper camera and snap it.
