One year on from the Perth Hills bushfires

  • At first the fire was contained. Then it jumped into thick bush surrounding homes in Kelmscott and Roleystone and the fight began to save lives and property. Homeowners, police, firefighters, even strangers off the street, joined in the battle. A year after the devastating Hills fires, this special report is a tribute to the community forged in the flames.
