Residents have been told it is too late to leave their homes in the regional Victoria areas of Cobden, Timboon, Simpson and Camperdown, as grass fires continued to rage on Sunday, March 18. The Herald Sun reported four homes had been destroyed by the blaze and thousands were without power. “Winds are pushing the fires in a southeasterly direction, but a strong westerly wind change is expected to impact the blazes soon,” the newspaper reported.
