Garden, Beach, Wildlife.

This, too, is Tasmania; between 3rd and around 12th January 2013, more than 24,000 hectares of vegetation, dozens of houses, and much livestock were destroyed; this video shows the fire moving through Copping on the 4th January.

Temperatures in Copping during the 'Firestorm' were 48 degC; ahead of the 'Fireball' in Dunalley, they reached 54 degC. Days later, when the electricity company crews started to replace the burnt power poles, after the fire had gone through, the first poles rammed in the ground charred - the temperature in the ground measured around 300 degC.
