Bushfire tragedy hits home

La Trobe University academic Dr Richard Zann – an internationally reknown ornithologist – his wife Eileen and their daughter Eva all perished in the bushfires in their Kinglake home. RIP.

Five La Trobe staff have seen their homes destroyed and nine students have been left with no housing.

Meanwhile police believe arson was responsible for the death of 100 people at Marysville.  A fire was deliberately lit this afternoon in my home suburb of Ivanhoe.

This nightmare will stick around for quite a while.

    Harry, that is terrible news.

    The magnitude of this horror, the scale of the loss and suffering, gets worse by the day.

    Sorry to hear that harry.

    I can’t understand this. how exactly do the cops know it was deliberately lit?

    I get the feeling this is an excuse giving the politicos political cover from their previous actions.hostal

    “how exactly do the cops know it was deliberately lit?”

    Slate had a story on this this week. It’s a combination of forensics and witnesses.

    It’s quite interesting how many people know someone who was affected. I don’t, but I do know someone with relatives whose house burnt down.

    This thing will be nation-changing.
