The temperature dropped, the wind dropped, and my anxiety levels dropped.

Time to find out what was still burning. Tools of the trade:
The infrared thermometer, a spade and a hose. Find the hot ground, dig a little, spray some water, and dig again where there is steam.

We found two buried stumps which were still burning. Here is the largest one:
It's about a metre long, and was gradually turning itself into charcoal. But it has now had a good soak, and is out. Phew!


  1. I can imagine that was definitely scary! Good job you have the right tools and know how to use them!

  2. Was thinking of you on Tuesday, checking Lal Lal as well as closer to home on the Fire Ready map. Not used to this early fire season. Good job managing that stump, they burn underground for a very long time.
