Coonabarabran Fire

ACT Rural Fire Service member, Tim Borough, who works for property section of the ANU in Canberra, was sent to Coonabarabran the day after the fire went through the Siding Spring Observatory. There was no qualified tanker driver available so Tim donned a set of yellows and helped black out the site. See more stories here:
