Fatninja.. you`re an ozzie and you ask a question like that? it`s common practice to fill up yer swimming pool/ jaccuzi/ whatever water container you have to A: fight the fires around yer own place. B: to help yer neighbours.

And yess during a bushfire/ fire they can take whatever water they can find. I wouldn` suggest bitching about it iether. as you might find your citizenship revoked.

The pool owner better be okay with this, as his house was in danger of burning.

Capt. kangeroo it works pretty sweet, it`s the reason they are used in Oz, the US and canada..

When i lived in OZ we had bushfires quite regulary and quite near.. one time we were directly under the flight path of a skycrane, thats 9000 liters of waters in one go..

and yeah the deal is that you fill up your pool/ jacuzzi/ whatever when there is a bushfire in the area..

Not particularly impressive flying- though I do applaud those that work as smokejumpers(If they`re still called that).
I do wonder at the efficacy of this method- the scoop-and-dump method.
It doesn`t seem to really be that efficient- But I`m not a firefighter, nor have I ever witnessed for myself, a raging conflagration.

I`ve heard of this happening before. When the fire is as close as this one, the pool owners don`t tend to object.

You can assume the owner of the pool is recording the video.
