Extinguishing the fire, getting control over the fires is insanely difficult. First of all the Forres T’s soil/ ground is made up by peed, which was used to used in the olden days to fire the heather’s in winter. It is extremely flammable especially being dry as a crisp in these long hot dry weeks without rain. Secondly it contains a very dense Forrest inaccessible to the public and the area is knows as a swamp area. No roads in or out. So help from the air force was needed to extinguish the bush fires with water sacks containing around 100.000 litres of water. Depicted in the images below looking rather nice for a drama of this scale, It’s been forecasted/predicted by officials it would take a few decades for this damage to be undone and regenerate
