Karen and Carly are in town when they here about a 'code red' fire warning. They return to their car and tune into local radio for an update.
With the danger being so close to their property Karen can't return home so she calls her Mum, Jean, to check that it's ok for them to seek refuge at her place for a few days.
Karen knows the dangers of driving in a bushfire, and winds up all her windows, closes air vents, and turns on her headlights. She receives a text from her neighbours that they are safe at the community town hall, and that they've switched off her mains and hosed down her house.
