What We’ve Learned About Bush Fires Since Black Saturday


Today makes the 10th anniversary of the Black Saturday bush fires in Victoria – a series of fires which led to the death of 173 people and the destruction of 2,000 homes.

The Daily’s Victor Petrovic spoke about this with Kevin Tolhurst, Senior Lecturer in Fire Ecology and Management at the University of Melbourne.
