Victoria bush fire. The Victorian bush fire is one of the worst fires recorded since the ash Wednesday incident. So far 180 people have died but the amount is expected to rise to about 200 as the search continues, and 750 houses have been destroyed. The Kinglake area remains the worst-hit by a fierce 220,000 hectare firestorm which ripped through the region on Saturday, killing 103 people so far and destroying over 550 homes. So far 330 000 hectares have been burnt out. Twenty serious burns patients have been admitted to The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne in 24 hours, all with burns to more than 30 per cent of their bodies. It is believed that arsonist is the cause of some of the fires. People’s houses that are under threat are advised to stay in their homes close all doors and windows and keep hydrated. Staying in your house is safer than driving on the roads. *Some of the survivor’s* stories; Two of the sisters' husbands had gone through the roadblock in a desperate search for Faye and Bill Walker and their wheelchair-bound son, Geoffrey, 53, at their home in the nearby village of Narbethong. The husbands found their bodies inside the house, with their car parked outside, packed and ready to go with the key in its ignition and family dog in the back. The three daughters Marilyn, Julie and Vivian, were inconsolable as they cried and hugged each other at the roadblock when their partners returned with the news.
