Joel Bryants Crowsnest Fire Presentation Joel Bryants Crowsnest Fire Presentation Presentation Transcript

  • The Crowsnest Fire: August 21, 2003
  • A 6-km wall of flame reached 50m into the sky, throwing off the energy equivalent of an atomic explosion every 30 minutes.
  • Her husband out of town on business, Crowsnest resident Elaine Hruby was forced to evacuate. Alone…
  • Hastily she grabbed the essentials, her pets…
  • … and jewellery
  • Then drove madly for 20km to a point overlooking the destruction, where she recalled being unable to look away from the sadistic horror of the flames.
  • All told, 20,000 hectares of forest were scorched by the blaze.
  • However, this event had a surprisingly diverse effect upon Crowsnest industry.
  • And where there is death, there is also life. As forest fires give birth to ecological diversity.
