Abstract

The Eyre Peninsula bushfires began on January 10, 2005. The fires were contained by emergency services, but weather conditions helped push the fires through containment lines on January 11. Wind speeds were 70 km/h and temperatures exceeded 40 degrees Celsius. More than 145,000 hectares of land burnt. Forty-eight thousand hectares were around the townships of Wangary, Wanilla, North Shield, Pooinindie, Louth Bay, Greenpatch and Yallunda Flat near Port Lincoln.
