Up In Smoke,. So what on earth went down at Wategos last night? I woke this morning to the phone buzzing its way across the coffee table, onto the carpet and across the living room floor, in Byron Bay today. Who, what, where? Everyone wanted to know, did I know what happened at Wategos’ last night, and did I have pictures of the blaze? Well no I don’t, I was happily hooking into a Japanese Curry when all hell was breaking loose over the hill at Watego’s. So I thought I’d better grab the camera and scoot over for a sticky beak. Yup it is as they all said; two multimillion dollar mansions were totally incinerated. I mean utterly burnt to the ground, roofs down, the lot. Sad for the folks that own them, but I reckon the real story here is just how lucky the other residents are that the fire fighters managed to contain the blaze to just two homes. Great job guys, I hear folks are complaining that two houses burnt, but it could have been so much worse. You see that entire valley is full of dead dried out Bitou Bush that got sprayed some time back. It hasn’t been removed and it’s some serious fuel for a fire. If that inferno had been allowed to spread into the Bitou bush, then one of Australia’s most expensive little patches of real estate could have all gone up in smoke, .
