Fire rages on Beecroft Peninsula

Strong westerly winds have fanned a large bushfire on the Beecroft Bombing Range.
locals are worried that the predicted southerly change this afternoon might send the fire towards Currarong.
Fires around the Jervis Bay region have featured in many old newspaper articles.
The people of Huskisson and the surrounding districts have had to battle bush fires since the the first Europeans arrived and started to clear the bush for settlement.

I will post a few of these stories at a later time.
