Queensland Fires – See Them in Pictures

Last week, we were mesmerized by news about the catastrophic Queensland fires that have swept through the state and caused thousands of residents to flee their homes. With over 100 Queensland fires burning, towns, schools, rail and roads were shut down while firefighters responded to rapidly unfolding fire threats.

At Winch Hire Australia, we empathize with the many Queenslanders whose lives were impacted by the evacuation and the real or potential loss of homes and livelihood. The pictures in the article that we have linked to below show the reality of Australia’s hot and dry pre-summer conditions, and the hardships faced by many Australians as a result. We can only hope for rain to assist with firefighting efforts and revive affected agribusiness.
