She said her son went to call the people to come and help put off the raging bush fire. She said before they could arrive at her farm, the fire has already burnt down one hectares of the farm. Wally is appealing for help from all and sundry to enable her fend for her family, whether in kind or cash, but most importantly her children's school fees and other needs of the family.
