The big guns have been out recently for bush fires burning to the north of Newcastle, up around the Williamtown and Raymond Terrace area. There have been lots of videos doing the rounds of this impressive machine working in close proximity to crews and houses. This thing is *loud*!

Port Stephens Fire

The fire has burnt over 2000 HA’s with hundreds of firefighters working through day and night to get containment on it. Efforts were hampered by strong erratic winds across the fireground. We’ve grabbed a few of the best videos to show you. If you’ve footage you’d like to share, drop us a line!
