Description On February 6th 2022, two massive bushfires surrounded the township of Corrigin. The fires resulted in the destruction of 45,000 hectares of farm and bushland in the Corrigin, Bruce Rock, Quairading and Kondinin shires. Approximately 1000 sheep, 760km boundary fencing, up to 1000km internal fencing, 19 residential structures (old houses and outdoor toilets) and 42 shearing/machinery sheds were lost. The fire knew no boundaries.

This book is a history that future generations will be able to read of the day Corrigin was threatened. The whole community, even the town, were under threat because of the catastrophic conditions of that day. Many community members put their lives in danger to try and save property and livestock.
