In the Face of Adversity

The Aussies are showing their spirit in the face of adversity. Beer Bloke says,

"Have a nice beer and raise a glass to those who can't."

After you have that nice beer, use the link at the top of the sidebar to contribute to the Victorian Bushfire Fund.

I've always wondered how, but could someone please answer this question for me? How does the fire get so high up in the air like that? The top fireball is atleast 15 times the height of the treeline.

The smoke itself is full of combustible material and traps the rising heat in pockets that cause sustained combustion to occur in mid-air.
