Australian fires

The news headlines here in the UK have been dominated by the awful bush fires in South East Australia. It's Australia's worst natural disaster of all time. Wine seems almost irrelevant when you think about people losing their lives, but it seems that the Yarra Valley vineyards in particular are at risk.

There's a Melbourne Age article on the affected wine areas here, and there's also an annotated google map here showing the location of the fires.
