Rain in Victoria (4.3.09) and cooler temperatures this week have ended the bushfires threat for now, raising hopes for peace into the coming Winter months.


Hot, dry conditions on Tuesday did not reach the severe limits that were feared, and with the rain, firefighters reported that all continuing fires had been brought under control.
