Quote from eye witness :
"Thank goodness for all the amazingly brave and skilled emergency services workers who have helped keep us safe from the bushfire at Molesworth. Helicopters have been collecting water from our dam to bomb the fire just over the ridge to the west of us. The winds have been changing direction suddenly. The bucket of this chopper became caught in the canopy of a gum tree. Knowing there had been a helicopter crash 2 days prior whilst firefighting just up the hill we watched in with great concern. Amazingly the pilot was able to disentangle without mishap and resume his task. I am in awe!"
