CUDLEE CREEK FIRE
(December 2019)

The Cudlee Creek bushfire started on 20 December 2019 shortly after 9am.
The fire hit many towns throughout the Adelaide Hills that day including Lobethal at 12.05pm, Woodside at 12.50pm, Brukunga at 2.45pm, Harrogate area at 6.31pm, and Mount Torrens at 7.23pm.
More than 2000 volunteers responded, and although the main charge of the fire was pulled up within 24 hours, breakouts and flare-ups continued for a further 10 days.
Fire cause investigators suspect the cause to be related to power infrastructure.
The fire resulted in the loss of one life and 51 firefighter injuries.
The fire was finally declared safe on 3 January 2020.
Although 85 homes were lost, hundreds were successfully defended as the fire consumed 23,295 hectares.

Lobethal fire map
The township of Lobethal was quickly surrounded by the fire and was only saved by the efforts of the CFS and other volunteers.
The fire raced up the western edge of the town, then, later, burnt around the southern edge and then the eastern side.
Many homes and other buildings were destroyed.
We were lucky that our home our home was not affected, the entire town could have been lost if not for the efforts of the many volunteers.

Many thanks to all those volunteers,
Peg & Bill.
