I hope no one here is directly involved, bloody terrible thing! Apart from the people and animals and property lost, there has been some footage of some classic cars burnt. A old Fairlane, a HQ something, (only saw the front sticking out of a collapsed shed, and then a bloke was being interviewed beside a burnt KT or G Monaro in a shed.
