The closest I ever came to brush fire is when my family visited oklahoma when they were having alot of fires, oh, I can't remember how long ago. I got to wake up one morning and go fight with fire volunteers who had a small tanker (a tad bigger than a SUV) they were using as an engine. i was even on the local news. So much for my '15 minutes'. I somehow feel a little cheated. Stay safe there in Aussie land!
