Bushfire devastation

This shows the results of the bushfires which ravaged Canberra, Australia's national capital, in January 2003. Four people died and over 500 homes were lost. If you zoom out and travel the area you will see the extent of the damage. You can see the number of empty blocks where homes once stood. North of this site are the remains of the historic Mt Stromlo Observatory. Details at : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003_Canberra_bushfires
