The fires are all pretty much under control now but there is still a smoky haze to the north. There is considerable damage.

In King's Park in recent years there has been a considerable effort made to remove exotic plants from the park and replant with plants native to the area. Much of this has been destroyed and it will take years for it to be restored. The Yanchep fire has caused millions of dollars worth of damage to the National Park and pine plantation. Hasty efforts are being made salvage what wood they can while in Bridgetown, homes and other buildings were destroyed.

But with a major fire so close to the CBD it could have been worse, much worse.
