Sizzling hot is the tragic fire crushing houses upside down. Smoke flies everywhere. Humans
and animals suffer to survive. Fire screams nice and loud. Burning, Boiling, Sweating and
Hot. Their need for water grows and grows. Many die and even more cry. Wishing for
survival. The big red flames turn houses into crumbs. Breathing loads of smoke. Wanting to
get out of their town but the flames stop them. Families lose members and the survivors
cry. The bushfires destroyed the town.
