Afternoon on the 8th
This Google Earth image shows that the fire is still continuing to creep down Tassajara Creek and is now at the confluence with Church Creek. Last night on the drive out we could see flames further up Church Creek thick smoke from Tassajara Creek just above the confluence.
The aggressive helicopter attack on the Willow Creek fire-front appears to have bought some time for structure preparation.
Firefighter Blog has an explanation of why there is less help from the fire services than we've been fortunate to have in the past.
